The Word On The Street is an annual, national celebration of literacy and the written word. The Editing Company had the pleasure of proofreading the 2009 Toronto Festival Guide. Its seventy-five pages are jam-packed with detailed listings of dates, times, and places of author readings and book signings, workshops and panels, kids events, and more. The guide also showcases descriptions of authors, books, and publishers across a wide range of genres. Titles, events, author names, and locations are accurately cross-referenced throughout the guide. TEC editors were responsible for checking all of these details and for catching all inconsistencies and incongruities in the final pages.
