A Farewell to Ibid.: Editing Footnotes

March 13, 2019

I’m heading to Providence, Rhode Island in a few weeks where Ideas on Fire is teaming up with Grey Editing to lead a session on a fabulously nerdy topic: editing footnotes! We’ll be at the 2018 ACES Society for Editing conference. Fellow editors, writers, scholars, altac/postac folks, and word nerds, we’d love to see you there.

A Farewell to Ibid.: Editing Footnotes

Part instructional session, part love letter to literature’s favorite hangers-on. Two nonfiction editors discuss how to decide between footnotes, endnotes and a mix of the two; discursive footnotes and the subtle art of informing without distracting; how different style manuals see the purposes of notes and style their citations accordingly; and a few examples of witty authors having a little fun with their footnotes. (Plus a farewell to our old friend Ibid.)
