The Writing Life

Have you ever wondered what an editor actually does? Is it just all about red pens and correcting people? If you’d like to find out, you can listen to the newest episode of The Writing Life, a podcast by the National Centre for Writing. In this episode, one of our founders, Ella Micheler was interviewed by Simon Jones about all things to do with editing, translation and publishing.

If you’d like to learn more about the editing process, you can download the Editing Pack at the National Centre for Writing, full of advice from industry insiders: Pack 8 – Editing

The pack contains:

  • Author Mary Paulson-Ellis on her editing experience
  • Assistant Editor at Hamish Hamilton, Hannah Chukwu, on the editing process
  • Ella Micheler on editing and translating literature for younger readers
  • Simon K Jones demonstrates the benefits of basic self-editing

Happy writing and editing! As we’re now firmly in November, I hope some of you have made a start on NaNoWriMo!
