Just a reminder that on Wednesday I’ll be at the London Book Fair on the following panel:
The Partnership between Author and Editor
The relationship between author and editor is not a straightforward one. Just how does an author work with both the in-house editor/publisher and freelance editor? This seminar looks at how all three work together to their mutual advantage and the panel is comprised of two trios: one trio in general/popular medicine and the other in fiction. The panel members are two authors (Mark Newton and Bridget McCall), two in-house editors (Julie Crisp and Dick Warner) and two freelance editors (Lawrence Osborn and Richenda Milton-Daws).
The seminar will be chaired by Christina Thomas, a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
Date and Time: 13 Apr 2011
Location: Wellington Room, Earls Court 1
I’ve always wanted to appear “Live at Earl’s Court, London” though in my imagination it was always with a Gibson Les Paul (40 seconds in – that’s what I’m talking about, people – there goes the evening: watching Led Zep clips on Youtube). Anyway, yes, I will be there with Julie Crisp, my editor at Pan Macmillan. She’s not keen on public speaking, so do come along to heckle us both.
I’ll be there. Want me to wave my lighter slowly whenever you speak?
If Health and Safety don’t get you, sure, why not?
