Developmental Editors Toolkit: The Reader’s Report

Presented by: Matthew Bennett, Cascadia Editors Collective

Of all the types of editing, developmental editing has something of a mystique. But the truth is, like all editorial interventions, dev editing involves common tools and analytical categories. The best tool for providing a manuscript review is the reader’s report, which breaks the manuscript down into constituent parts while also focusing on issues organic to the project. Join Guild board member Matthew Bennett for an evening of presentation and Q&A to add the reader’s report to your editing toolkit.
