Editing Informational Nonfiction

This class provides an overview of the major elements of nonfiction an editor must be prepared to address with a writer: Personality, Presentation, Information, Voice, and Mechanics.
Using a comprehensive editorial checklist for nonfiction books, we’ll review each element in turn, explaining what acquisition editors and readers look for and how you can help your client deliver.
