The Professional Editors Network presents professional development meetings on the second Tuesday of the month from September to May. These events cover a wide range of topics and may be led by PEN members, outside experts, or a combination of both. We also offer regular happy hours and occasional other learning opportunities for members through workshops and online classes. Meetings and happy hours are free; workshops and online classes may carry an additional cost. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are holding all 2020–2021 meetings virtually, and happy hours are on indefinite hold.

If you’re not yet a member, you may attend up to two regular monthly meetings before joining PEN. Happy hours are always open to both members and nonmembers.
