Collaborative Editing: A Look at Models and Methods

We've assembled a panel of experienced editors who work in a collaborative editing mode. We've asked them to explain their models and their processes, the challenges, the benefits, and to answer our questions about how it all works for them. It's a great opportunity to consider your own interest in a collaborative format--even for a portion of your work. Join us for a discussion of what's working...and maybe to inspire what's possible. Bring your questions.

Panelists:

Seattle-based Kyra Freestar founded Tandem Editing LLC with partner Connie Chaplan in 2010 to better serve nonprofit and academic clients. Their tagline: One point of contact, two sets of eyes. Kyra also copyedits books on the side (sometimes for Girl Friday Productions) and volunteers for the Northwest Independent Editors Guild. Visit her online at Tandem Editing LLC or @KyraFreestar on Twitter.

Kate Chynoweth works with a diverse list of titles at Girl Friday Productions (a collaborative enterprise), where she is editor-at-large. Kate is also a writer, and her publications include the best-selling advice book "The Bridesmaid Guide" and a half dozen other projects. She lives in Berkeley. Visit Girl Friday Productions.

Dalya Massachi inspires and equips social entrepreneurs to use their writing to make a difference in the world.
