Working Productively with an Editor
NOTE: We rescheduled this event for Friday September 22, 2017, 1–2 pm EST
Writing is HARD. Revising is even harder. Whether you’re figuring out how to implement reader report suggestions, revising your dissertation into a first book, or updating a languishing manuscript to finally get it out into the world, a professional editor can help. In this free webinar, Ideas on Fire editor Sarah Grey will walk you though what professional editors offer and how they can help your book shine.
We’ll cover how to decide which kind of editing you need (and when you need it), what an editor can and can’t do to make your manuscript great, what you can expect to see in an edited document, and how to best collaborate with your editor to create a fantastic interdisciplinary book that helps create the change you want to see in the world.
Register now to join us live on Friday., September 22, 1–2 pm EST
