Acquisitions Editing

This month we're learning about the job function of an acquisitions editor, the different levels of what an acquiring editor can do, and how to connect with people who fill this role in the publishing industry. EFA members from Under the Gum Tree, a local independent literary arts magazine, will lead the discussion.  You'll learn the fundamentals of acquisitions editing and get a snapshot of what the submission review process looks like. You'll leave with pointers on finding a good fit for your (or your clients') work.

    Great introduction into the world of acquisition editing. I found out what it was (kind of the front line, comparable to an insurance underwriter who is the first to determine whether an insurance applicant meets the insurability criteria, which is what I used to do).

    Ack! I was looking forward to this, too. But I'm behind on a project with a deadline looming. Sorry to miss it.

    Just a quick reminder that visitor parking will be both immediately to the right when you turn onto Oakenshield, or on your first left, on either side of Bombadil. The P/Q, K, and D stop at Arlington and Shasta and are currently free to ride. See you tonight.
