Working with Editors from the Author’s POV
Cindy Woodsmall

Freelance editors are an integral part of the publishing industry, and in her fourteen years as a writer, Cindy has seen many author-editor relationships become an unbreakable team while others became contentious and fell apart, depriving the reading world of what could’ve been. This session will cover knowing when to respect an author’s work and when to challenge it and how to address the tough issues while forming a strong bond. Cindy has written for Penguin Random House for twelve years, and their editing-round process uses staff and freelance editors for every work. Let her experience work for you.
