EFA Upper Hudson Chapter Meeting: To Err Is Human

November 21st @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm EST

To Err Is Human

Everyone makes mistakes. The challenge is how to handle those mistakes with humility and aplomb. Sometimes it’s mistake with a job bid, sometimes it’s a mistake with timing, and sometimes it’s just a big editorial blunder. Terese Platten, co-leader of the Upper Hudson EFA chapter, will lead a discussion on owning your mistakes, discerning whether a mistake is fixable, devising plans of action, and confidently discussing mistakes with clients. Meeting attendees are asked to bring their own stories, which might be used as case studies in the group discussion, so attendees are also required to bring their sense of humor.

Terese Platten is a freelance editor with more that 25 years of mistakes under her belt. She edits nonfiction subjects, including engineering, medical arts, and political science, which all lend themselves to major opportunities for making mistakes.

Please note change of venue for this meeting only: St. Peter’s Church in Spencertown, NY. We’ll be meeting in the Fellowship Hall, downstairs. Handicapped accessible, with ramp into entrance and elevator to basement. Free WiFi. Light refreshments will be served.

Parking: Park along the side of the road on the church side or the Green — the triangle enclosed by three routes. Please do note block the driveway of the manse — the house next to the church — and do not block the entry to the cemetery on the other side of the church.
