At my presentation at the Roseville, California library I was asked, as I am often asked, how to find a good editor. I found some good advice from Amanda Shofner.
This list of the questions she answers is not enough. Go ahead and read the article.
- Know the type of editing you need
- Learn what the editor is all about
- Determine the genres they edit
- Ask whether they offer sample edits
- Realize that editors will make changes… but it doesn’t mean you’re a terrible writer
