Program Description


It is a truth universally acknowledged that all authors need an editor. Having a second set of eyes review your immortal prose, having someone else double-check your already fact-checked facts, having someone diplomatically tell you if you’ve missed the mark somewhere in your manuscript…these are just a few of the things that a competent editor brings to the table.

But finding an editor can be a daunting task. When do you bring an editor into the process? How do you find a really good one, an editor who can spot a typo at 50 paces—an editor who you like and who you trust? And how in the world can you work so closely with someone who seems to be constantly criticizing you without losing your mind?

Professional writer McClaren Peterson Davies, author of Living Life Inside Out: A Collection of Likely Stories, will discuss the challenges of working with an editor in this lively and fun presentation. Joined by her editor and publisher Liz Coursen, McClaren and Liz will share practical tips and effective strategies to help you find the editor who is the very best fit for you and for your manuscript.
