The importance of edtingediting

In the pack:

  • 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
This month we’re all about editing and its importance to the creation of any successful novel. We asked writers and editors to contribute their insight into the editing process, from basic-but-essential self-editing through to working with editors at major publishers like Hamish Hamilton, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
As always, let us know what you’re working on by joining our Discord community.
Happy writing!
