Featured Presentation: "That Comma Doesn't Go There: Why You Need Editors to Help You Keep it Real"

Having someone edit your work is more than just getting back a grammatically correct document—it’s about trusting someone to read your work with an eye to making it better and honing in on those things that you as an author won't necessarily catch. Beta readers and friends are great resources, but in this presentation Natalie and Mindy will address the key reasons professional editing is important to taking your manuscript to the next level. They will also go over the editing process as a whole, how to work with an editor, and how to get the most out of the process. Don't miss this informative and lively presentation!
