our-lady-of-weight-loss“I participated in your How to Write a Knockout Proposal class and I was knocked out. You planted enough seeds in my brain to grow a forest. You gave a new meaning to the word ‘platform,’ and a new spin on competition. Thanks much for an illuminating evening.”—Janice Taylor, author of Our Lady of Weight Loss

Editing Is Only One Part of the Job: Walk Through a Day in the Life of an Acquisitions Editor

WHAT: A day in the life of an editor usually lacks one thing: editing. It’s not that they don’t edit. They just rarely have time to do it during their workday. That’s what nights, weekends, and the occasional “editing from home” days are for. Weekdays are for sorting out every other detail that gets a book from the writer’s desk to the bookstore shelf. Join these editors as they take you behind the scenes in their typical workday.

WHEN: 10 a.m. – 11 a.m., Saturday, September 7

WHERE: St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY

WHO: Panelists include Stacey Barney, Executive Editor, G.P. Putnam’s Books for Young Readers; Nicole Counts, Editor and Publishing Manager, One World, Random House; Seema Mahanian, Editor, Grand Central Publishing, Hachette; Laura Van der Veer, Editor, Little A. Moderated by Marcela Landres, Editorial Consultant
