One on One: Working with an Independent Editor

You’ve begun submitting your masterpiece—and it’s not getting the reaction you hoped for. Or you’re still struggling with a certain aspect of the story, something you’re not sure is hitting the mark. Or perhaps you've decided to self-publish and want to be sure your book is of top professional quality. It's time to call in a pro to help get you publication-ready. But how can you tell if the editor you're considering is a good match? What questions should you be asking? And what if you disagree with the feedback you receive? This session will show you how to find and engage the right editor for your needs, develop a strong writer-editor relationship, and protect your interests as a writer. You’ll also learn strategies for tackling the marked-up manuscript and bringing out the best in your writing.
