As editing opportunities shrink in traditional publishing, they continue to expand rapidly in self-publishing. Learn how you can work with and guide independent authors in a way that is fair to them and worthwhile for you. The webinar will be an overview of the independent publishing process, including ethical, financial, and practical considerations. Figure out where you can fit into the process in a way that works best for you.
The rise of self-publishing has vastly increased the demand for an old editorial skill -- manuscript evaluation (also called critiquing). Often you'll be asked to edit a manuscript that just isn't ready for editing. An evaluation lets you guide the writer through the task of reworking the manuscript. A properly prepared evaluation looks at a wide variety of aspects of the manuscript, pointing out what's working and what isn't. Evaluation is what beta readers think they are doing, but at a much more professional level. This webinar will discuss how to evaluate fiction and non-fiction manuscripts.
