About this course:To be successful, editors draw from a broad base of skills while taking the entire publishing process into account. They are avid, active readers in their own right who understand the way the publishing market works. Beyond that, they also understand the specialized technological tools in use today, are strong proofreaders, and communicate clearly and concisely with other departments in order to set a manuscript up for success through production, marketing, and media outreach. By the end of this introductory workshop, students understand the full outline of publishing a book, how and why it develops through each department, and begin to understand how editors meet the demands of their profession and thrive in the workplace
