The Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) welcomes applications for the 47th Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents, to be held 17 – 21 June 2018 at the Red Lion Inn in Olympia, Washington. See bit.ly/2jMZTZm.

The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents, known informally as "Camp Edit," is an annual five-day workshop for individuals new to the field of historical documentary editing. With the needs of the participants as a guide, experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles and practices of documentary editing and insight into the realities of work on a documentary edition.

Documentary editing is the craft of preparing historical writings for publication in print or online. The goal is to produce an authoritative edition of the material, with an accurate transcription of the original manuscript and an editorial framework that facilitates understanding of the text and context.

Participants in the Editing Institute might be joining the staff of an existing documentary editing project or launching their own. Since its inception in 1972, the Editing Institute has trained more than 500 individuals. These include not only full-time documentary editors but also college and university faculty and graduate students, archivists and librarians, government historians, public historians, and independent scholars. No previous editorial or technical experience is required, we welcome applications from individuals in any field who would benefit from intensive training in the design and execution of a documentary editing project.

The 47th Editing Institute will take place in conjunction with the 2018 ADE Annual Meeting, which will be held immediately following the Editing Institute, 21–23 June, also at the Red Lion Inn in Olympia.

The Editing Institute charges no tuition, and travel stipends of $1200 will be provided to eligible participants living outside the immediate Olympia area, free registration to attend the Annual Meeting, and a one-year membership in the ADE. Admission, however, is competitive. For more information about the institute or the application, please email nlwasmoe at buffalo.edu<mailto:nlwasmoe at buffalo.edu>.

You can apply online using at bit.ly/2jMZTZm, where you can also download an offline application form if you prefer to email your submission. The deadline for applications is 2 February 2018.

The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is administered by the Association for Documentary Editing under a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an affiliate of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
