What makes an editor an editor? How does developmental editing differ from copy editing? With so many people out there calling themselves editors, how do you know you have found a good one? Get answers to these and many more questions in this one-day workshop covering all aspects of hiring and working with an editor. We will discuss the types of editors available to you, how to find and hire a qualified editor, and what you can expect from the editing process. We will also look at sample edits and cost estimates.
