An Editor’s Impact on an Author’s Words – Edwina Perkins

In 1870, intentional misrepresentation of edits in a document from the King of Prussia to the French ambassador added to the tension between France and Germany and probably contributed to the start of WWI. Words have power and will cause change one way or the other. So can the ways those words are edited. In this session, Edwina Perkins will outline our responsibility as editors so we can ensure an author’s writing is clear and effective and highlight the ways we can help an author achieve those goals.
