About this event

So You Want to Learn How Editors Can Help Writers

with Sally Asnicar

Costs:  FREE

This workshop is sponsored by the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) through the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund. It is brought to you by the KSP Writers' Centre with support from the Shire of Mundaring.

The most common question editors are asked about their work is ‘What exactly do you do?’ Even from writers! This has been the shared experience of editors across the board, whether they work as freelancers or in-house staff for publishing houses, not-for-profits, universities and the education sector, the public service or the corporate sector.

This seminar for established and developing writers will cover what editors do, how much they cost, and the levels of service they can provide. Sally will take participants through what’s involved in the publishing process, the roles and responsibilities of members of the publishing team and how writers can select a professional editor and work well with them to help to polish their work for submission to publishers or to self-publish.

About the Facilitator, Sally Asnicar

I am a Sydney-based editor who founded my business, Full Proofreading Services, in 2007. I developed a lifelong passion for writing and a meticulous eye for detail during my career working at law firms, and as a researcher and report writer for Mitsui Australia.

Clients include businesses of all sizes and industries/professions, government departments and agencies, not-for-profits, and writers. I help people to express themselves eloquently and clearly in their writing, and to produce material that is polished and engaging.

I’m a long-time Professional Member of the Institute of Professional Editors Ltd (IPEd). I also volunteer for IPEd in the roles of mentor and ambassador, as well as on working parties. In my spare time, I enjoy reading (of course), dancing, bushwalking, birdwatching, and skiing – on water and on snow. I am also a justice of the peace and enjoy volunteering my time to IPEd and various causes.

Organizer KSP Writers' Centre

Organizer of So You Want to ... Learn How Editors Can Help Writers

The Katharine Susannah Prichard (KSP) Writers’ Centre, affectionately known as KSP or Katharine's Place, is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to encouraging authors and running writing development activities in the former home of celebrated Australian writer, Katharine Susannah Prichard (1883-1969), author of Coonardoo, Working Bullocks and The Goldfields Trilogy.

The KSP Writers’ Centre is located in the beautiful Perth Hills region. It is a community space which is open all year round for visitors to be inspired by a walk through the heritage-listed gardens.

The Centre boasts a premiere Writer-in-Residence program and unique Youth Program. In addition, annual activities include workshops, courses, writing groups, author talks, retreats, fellowships, manuscript assessments, mentoring, competitions, and an annual line-up of fun social events. The current literary program is brought to you with thanks to the substantial support of the Shire of Mundaring. 

‘The ambience of the place, and the encouraging attitude of all those concerned with it, can do nothing but further enhance and nurture a writer's career.’ Susan Laura Sullivan, poet, novelist and former KSP Writer-in-Residence
