Stronger than the Sum of its Parts: The Author-Editor Relationship

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Good editors do more than copyedit. They point out where characters or story could be improved. Writers do more than write. They work with editors to improve the work. Our panelists discuss the editor-author relationship, how it works best, and some how to avoid its pitfalls.

This session will be livestreamed to our virtual convention.
