Description

How to work with an editor

Getting the most out of the writer-editor relationship requires an understanding of what editors do. Using real-world examples and hands-on exercises, The Lifted Brow editor Sam Cooney will let you in on the daily ins-and-outs of editing, including pitching, negotiating terms, editing (all three stages), promoting your work and post-publication. Improve your skills, increase your chances of publication and learn to better collaborate with editors across the content lifecycle.

Format

A workshop for intermediate and emerging writers
