“I really enjoyed the EASE Editorial School. It was well organised, and the materials presented by Pippa Smart and accompanying notes were very relevant to anyone with an editorial role. An aspect I found particularly useful was the opportunity to discuss scenarios based on course material with colleagues from around the world, hearing different perspectives and approaches”

“At the beginning of autumn, we were all very excited about the upcoming Editors School organized by EASE. However, the Russian attacks on the Ukrainian power grid made some ‘adjustments’ to our plans.
After the first attack and some repairs to the grid, we started to have ‘scheduled outages’ but only in name, as they rarely worked. As much as I wanted, I wasn’t able to attend all four modules of the course, but luckily, everything was recorded so I was able to catch up. It’s a shame that in Ukraine, we were in these terrible conditions, and as I know, the attendance of Ukrainian members was not as high as expected. And it is no surprise, as we had power sometimes for only two-three hours a day.
Despite these difficulties, thanks to the two-session organization of the event and available recordings, we were able to learn a lot about editing work. We are very grateful for EASE for this opportunity and support of Ukraine in this difficult time. ”
