CHWG Shop Talk - Copy Editors: Nitpickers or Lifesavers?

Please join us this December when our guest speaker will be Lorna Walsh.

Copy Editors: Nitpickers or Lifesavers?

This will be a fun session that answers the questions: What do copy editors do exactly? What don’t they do? Where does copyediting fit into the editorial process? What makes a good copy editor? Why do I need one? How do I get one? And most importantly: Should it be “copy editor,” “copy-editor,” or “copyeditor”? Although it won’t be a grammar lesson, the session will also highlight the common mistakes that even the most accomplished writers make.

Attendees will be offered FREE copyediting (5000 words max.) from the Embark Editorial Agency!

Lorna Walsh is a fiction writer. Her latest short story, “Becoming,” was published in F(r)iction #4 and is a 2017 Pushcart Prize nominee. She is currently seeking representation for her first novel and working on her second. Also an editor, Lorna provides affordable editing services to nonprofits, small businesses, and indie writers.
