NOVEMBER Topic: Thinking Like an Editor: Tips for Delivering Manuscripts that Make an Editor’s Job Easy

Now, more than ever, editors are busy people. The author-editor relationship is a partnership, and one key to being a good partner is to make an editor’s job as easy as possible. For a writer, that means thinking like an editor, and doing everything possible to deliver a clean manuscript. This session by award-winning author Deborah Hopkinson will provide tips to do just that–and help you become an author editors are happy to work with again.
