The Cultural Foundation of the National Bank of Greece organized its first workshop for editors in the academic year 2003-2004.
The workshop is addressed to young scholars (25-35 years old) who wish to become professional editors.
Members of the workshop should meet all the following conditions:
Knowledge of ancient Greek and Latin is considered a serious advantage. Previous activity, professional or amateur, in proofreading or copy-editing is not a prerequisite for participation in the Foundation's workshop and is definitely not an advantage.
Participants in the workshop are trained in editing as practised by the Foundation. This is a two-year course with two-hour sessions held twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday 4.30-6.30 pm), between October and June, at the Foundation's offices in Plaka, 13 Thoukydidou St.
The workshop is directed by the head of the Foundation's publications, Antigone Filιppοpoulou, and the historian-editor, Costoula Sclavenitis, but other professionals from the publishing business (editors, translators, typographers) also participate from time to time. Upon completion of the course, participants will be in a position to undertake the editing of scientific publications on behalf of the Foundation or other publishing houses.
Interested parties should send an application form, along with a brief CV, to or the Cultural Foundation of the National Bank, 13 Thoukydidou St, Athens 105 58, for the attention of the Workshop for Editors.
