The Guild of Copy Editors invites you to participate in its events:

  • The February 2013 Copy Edit of the Month Contest is currently in the submissions stage. Submit your best February copy edit there before the end of the month. Submissions end, and discussion and voting begin, on March 1 at 00:00 (UTC).
  • Voting is in progress for the January 2013 Copy Edit of the Month Contest. Everyone is welcome to vote, whether they have entered the contest or not.
  • In the week from Sunday 17 February to Saturday 23 February, we are holding a Request Blitz, in which we will copy edit articles from our requests page. The blitz works much like our bimonthly drives, but a bit simpler. Everyone is welcome to take part, and barnstars will be awarded.
  • The March 2013 Backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy edit backlog. The drive begins on March 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on March 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copy edit all articles tagged in February, March, and April 2012 and to complete all requests placed before the end of February. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copy edits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", "Number of articles of over 5,000 words", "Number of articles tagged in February, March, and April 2012", and "Longest article". We hope to see you there! – Your drive coordinators: Torchiest, BDD, and Miniapolis.
