Lending Library Pilot Launch

Members, we are excited to announce your branch Lending Library! You will discover a growing collection of editing-related books that you may check out online for pickup or delivery.

What’s in the library?

More than 50 printed books about publishing including style guides, reference works, writing memoirs, and graphic design titles. Donations to the collection are welcome. Please contact us here or by email if you have any works to contribute.

Who may borrow materials?

Only Editors Ottawa–Gatineau members may borrow books free of charge as a membership benefit.

How does it work?

Fill out the form in the Lending Library to select up to four books and a member of the branch executive will email you to make a borrowing plan. In the pilot stage, each loan will be handled on a case-by-case basis to ensure you have a suitable amount of time to access, read, and return your borrowed books.

Happy reading, editors!

A Welcome From Capital Letters

Hey, folks!

Whether it’s been a while or you’re here for the first time, thank you for reading the revived Capital Letters. After taking a break and being compelled to think creatively about the future, we’re back with something new.

Our vision for the site is to create a space where wide-ranging interests can be indulged and explored. We want our members, local editors, and the wider publishing community in Ottawa–Gatineau to read and contribute stories, book reviews, thoughtful discussions, and withering insights. To help facilitate this, we’ve even launched our MatchUp program to help local editors meet other local editors!

So, let’s go word nerds, let’s talk about editing, reading, complex ideas, and creative work. Thanks for joining us on this discursive endeavour.
