I’m featured today as the editor on “Meet The Editor.”
I’ve been contributing to this co-op blog since its inception, but we’re just getting around to meeting each editor a bit more in-depth. The wonderful Jesaka Long came up with questions for each of us to answer. If you zip over, you’ll find my answers to these questions:
When did you first notice you were hung-up on typos?And be sure you come back here tomorrow. Verna Dreisbach, founder of Dreisbach Literary Management, award-winning published author, and President of Capitol City Young Writers, is going to tell us about the non-profit CCYW. Capitol City Young Writers is dedicated to educating and inspiring writers, primarily in grades 6 through 12. The group is fairly new but making a powerful footprint. She’ll tell us all about it tomorrow.
What advice would you give someone interested in becoming an editor?
What’s the best advice you have ever received from a writer?
What the best advice you’ve given a writer?
In your opinion, what makes an editor great?
What the one misconception about editors you want to clear up?
Why should a writer choose to work with you?
What genres do you focus on? Why?
I’ll be gone to Fort Worth all day doing interviews for the book I’m working on (with a due date of early April - yikes!). I hope you’ll ask questions, leave comments and make Verna feel welcome.
