Whether you're just getting started or sharpening your skills, this is a vital tool for anyone who's in the business of creative communication.

It discusses not only the specifics of editing for content, style, and presentation, but also the dynamics of the author-editor relationship and the problems that arise from having multiple editors involved in a project.

It will guide students and practitioners in the five essential language skills for editors (spelling, grammar, punctuation, usage, and AP style); detailed strategies for editing copy and writing headlines; and essential topics for the beginning editor (editing quotations, layout guidelines, photo editing, caption writing, and more).
