We all need a great editor
I loved every single part of this article about editor Julie Strauss-Gabel, who writes long, detailed and smart letters to her writers with her feedback. I love that her writers find them terrifying but ultimately incredibly helpful, I love that it shows people that even top-notch writers need an editor, and I just loved that she sounds like such a bad-ass.
I absolutely feared the purple (no, not red) pen of my former editor bosses, and still cannot believe how much better my pieces are after a smart, thoughtful reader goes through them.
Any suggestions for what date to hold our first annual “Hug an Editor” day?
