Juggling multiple editorial projects is the lifeblood of any successful editing business. But it can be hard to find the time and energy for this, especially when the actual manuscript editing takes so much care and attention (as it should!).

Join Dr. Cathy Hannabach, academic editor and founder of Ideas on Fire, as she talks about how you can use AI/automation to manage your editorial projects and free up your time to focus on what you do best: edit.

Learn how to identify which of your processes can be best helped with AI/automation, how to evaluate AI/automation tools, and how to incorporate AI/automation into your common workflows.

AI and automation can help you with:

  • collecting and responding to project inquiries
  • managing client and project data
  • systematizing your file and folder organization
  • scheduling meetings and maintaining your calendar
  • communicating promptly and clearly with stakeholders
  • archiving finished projects and backing up your data
  • future-proofing your systems so they can adapt to your business’s changing needs

*Note: AI and automation are not the same thing! We’ll be covering both in this event, though, as the most helpful project management tools for editors often combine some version of both.

Dr. Cathy Hannabach is the founder and CEO of Ideas on Fire, where she helps interdisciplinary academics write and publish awesome texts, enliven public conversations, and create more just worlds. Passionate about interdisciplinary indexing and editing, she leads a transnational team helping scholars make an impact.

Cathy also hosts Imagine Otherwise, a podcast highlighting those bridging art, activism, and academia in the service of social justice. Author of Blood Cultures: Medicine, Media, and Militarisms and Book Marketing for Academics, her research and commentary appear in outlets including New Learning Times, Cultural Politics, the BBC, Women and Performance, Contra*, Social Text: PeriscopeStudies in Gender and Sexuality, and Dismantle Magazine.
