What Should I Know Before Hiring a Freelance Editor? (Amanda Shofner)

changeAt 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.

  1. Know the type of editing you need
  2. Learn what the editor is all about
  3. Determine the genres they edit
  4. Ask whether they offer sample edits
  5. Realize that editors will make changes… but it doesn’t mean you’re a terrible writer
