What exactly is a developmental edit, and how does one deliver this kind of feedback to a client with the right balance of critique and encouragement? How does a developmental edit differ for a novel or memoir vs. prescriptive nonfiction? How do you know when a developmental edit is even necessary?
Join us to hone your editorial skills!
The Editorial Freelancers Association National Conference is happening on August 29-30, 2016 in New York City for the first time in years. And I’ll be there to talk to you about “Defining and Delivering the Developmental Edit,” a brief presentation followed by a more lengthy panel discussion with fellow editor Erin Wilcox. The panel will be moderated by Sangeeta Mehta, also a developmental editor.
