Choosing a professional editor is a little like dating. This course walks you through getting your manuscript as clean as possible before approaching an editor. We discuss how to find an editor, how to interact with one, and how to take the plunge of hiring one. Each of the four weeks, we will edit approximately 1,000 (one thousand) words from the project you have chosen. This is the heart of this class—getting real feedback on your work from a professional editor.
