Almost Everything You Need to Know About Editing AND How to Find the Right Editor for Your Manuscript
Have you considered hiring an editor but don’t know if the expense is worth it, what editors do, what type of edit is needed, or how to find an editor that’s right for your work? Or maybe you’re wondering why one editor promised to provide a developmental edit for your 80,000-word manuscript for $400 while another wants $2400? This presentation will give you a firm foundation in the basics. We’ll break down the differences in a developmental edit, line edit, copy edit, and proofread—and typical costs for each. We’ll cover the essential aspects of what editors do (or should do) and what they don’t do (or shouldn’t do). Most importantly, when you’re ready to hire an editor, you’ll know what to ask for, what to expect, and how to determine if the editor is the right one for you—and your manuscript.
