All About Editing

Did you know there are six steps to producing a book, and THREE of them are editing??? But ask yourself: What do you really know about editing? Do you understand the differences between developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading? Do you know what order they need to be done in? Do you know how you should prepare your manuscript for editing, or even how to find reliable editors, and how much they will cost?

On Wednesday, November 14, you’ll have a chance to get all the answers you need, as professional editors Karen Tucker and Andrew Doty team up to talk All About Editing at the monthly St. Louis Publishers Association meeting at the Richmond Heights Community Center.

Learn about the different types of editors and editing, tips and tricks for communicating effectively with your editors, and advice on editing your own manuscript to save time and money.

Karen Tucker is a content editor, copyeditor, and proofreader with 20 years of professional experience in technical and educational material, motivational books, memoirs, and novels, as a freelancer and the editor behind Comma Queen Editing (commaqueenediting.com).

Andrew Doty is a book coach and developmental editor, editorial director of the St. Louis Publishers Association, editor-in-chief of punctum books, founder of Write for a Change, and owner of the creative publishing agency Editwright (editwright.com).

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn all about editing. Come with questions, leave with answers!
