The Importance of Editors (Green Room 42)
The Room 42 Green Room is the meeting place for active conversations about topics of most interest for technical and professional communication practitioners.
In this episode, we sit down with a group of very talented and tenured editors. They share what it takes to make an editor and the impact the role has in enhancing and elevating the overall quality of the entire team. Sure, they know grammar and punctuation and they can spot errors with a keen well trained analytical eye. But they also see the big picture of the overall content strategy and how it works with the corporate strategy. They have a fine-tuned ear for language and make sure that content created by many sounds as unified as content created by one. The versatility of a seasoned editor goes far beyond just editing, this person can be a big asset to your team.
If you care about accuracy, consistency, and clarity, and if you want a stronger writing team, then you must have an editor on your team.
In this episode, you’ll find: Edna Smith, Li-At Rathbun, Sherri Leah Henkin, Kelly Schrank and Dr. George Hayhoe.
