SWET Talk Shop via Zoom: Wordsmiths on the Move

Speakers: Emily Balistrieri, Winnie Bird, Susan Jones, Avery Udagawa, and Lisa Wilcut

Saturday, November 27, 2021, 10:00 a.m.–12:00 noon JST
Friday, November 26, 8:00–10:00 p.m. EST

In the first hour, five members of the SWET Steering Committee—whose work straddles writing, editing, translating, and teaching—talked about their work and current projects. They shared experiences with new tools and technologies they've encountered. And discussed some plans for future SWET activities and initiatives.

Some of the matters on on the agenda were: 1) how we can better cope with the pressures we are under; 2) what useful tools and technologies are really helpful to us; 3) how SWET can help to support our professional endeavors; and 4) how SWET can better reach out to the next generation of wordsmiths.
