J298 How to be an Editor

This course is designed to be a tasting platter for the aspiring print editor (digital or paper), or anyone curious about the job. It’s also a great course for writers who want to learn how editors think, and use those skills to make their own work better. Almost anyone can read a piece and tell that it isn’t working. But identifying precisely why it isn’t working, and how to fix it, is magic. One goal of this class will be to connect you with actual working editors at great publications.
