The Nitpicker's NookBy Emily Chau

  • The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has formed a new group on LinkedIn. Join in to learn a thing or two! (LinkedIn)
  • Do you learn best with graphics? Here’s a neat infographic on the Oxford comma, with arguments for and against using the divisive punctuation mark. (Daily Infographic)
  • The Canadian Agricultural Library has digitized many of its documents. Here’s a great source for all editors. (Archive.org)
  • Are “old” ways the better way? What about marketing? Here’s a new blog entry with 10 reasons to write a snail-mail letter, and five things to do with multiple tools and channels. (Society for Editors and Proofreaders)

  • As part of Open Book Toronto’s interview series “Acknowledgements,” the site speaks to copy editor (and author and poet) Stuart Ross, who is described as “an institution in Canada’s literary press landscape. If Toronto’s literary scene had a Mount Rushmore, his would probably be one of the faces dynamited into the stone.” (Open Book Toronto)

Emily Chau is a mid-level public relations practitioner in Toronto. She is also a web experimenter and passionate about volunteering.
