Event Details

Synopsis

Editing? Want to advance and add skills? All editors (books, magazines, websites) now need to keep up with changing roles and the rapid expansion of technology and its effects on publishing (print and online). You’ll want to deepen your skills working with and analysing texts; understanding the market, and using all you have to make your publication the best it can be! Join us for an intense (and intensely fun) day.

Outline

  • Balancing the elements: Being advocate for the public, the publisher and the author
  • Who the writing’s for? What is its best form?
  • Structural and line editing—how much of each is enough?
  • When to stop editing: when is the piece ‘just right’?
  • Keeping the reader reading (with no blips!). Proofreading techniques
  • What an editor’s role and responsibilities are beyond ‘pure’ editing
  • Communicating well: Becoming a diplomat and a choreographer!
  • Bringing it all together and ‘launching’ the manuscript

She runs S K Publishing (working with a range of private and publishing clients) and, since 2009, has presented Editing in Paradise masterclass programs.
