Do Editors Still Edit? Ep. 3.34

November 4, 2021

If you've ever managed to get your manuscript published by a traditional publisher, you've probably faced the harsh reality that many publishers aren't interested in editing your novel... and don't plan on it. So how do you get your book reader-ready? Keystroke's resident editors take a chapter from Scott Moon's book straight through the editing process--developmental, line, and copy--to demonstrate, once and for all, that editing is not dead.

Hosts: Lauren Moore, Kalene Williams Special Guests: Ellen Campbell
