Want to edit professionally for academic authors?
Or learn professional techniques for editing your own manuscripts?
This 90-minute webinar will introduce you to the practice of professional developmental editing for academic authors.
In it, I'll cover what developmental editing is and how it fits into the academic publishing process for both journals and books.
I'll also share the nuts and bolts of what developmental editors do with academic texts.
The final section of the presentation will discuss how to acquire clients and work with authors as a self-employed developmental editor.
Following the presentation you'll be able to ask any questions you might have about developmental editing as a career.
This webinar took place live on June 22, 2022.
By registering, you will receive lifetime access to the recording and supporting materials.
Hi, I'm Laura Portwood-Stacer, publishing consultant for academic authors and owner of Manuscript Works. I'm an experienced developmental editor who has helped hundreds of scholars publish their books with dozens of competitive university presses (see a selection of the books I've worked on at manuscriptworks.com/client-projects).
This is my fourth year offering this webinar on developmental editing. I also offer a course on developmental editing which has given over 120 editors the tools to launch or strengthen their academic developmental editing services.
