Peter Ginna - What Editors Do: The Art, Craft, and Business of Book Editing — in conversation with Gail Ross, Cal Morgan, and Susan Ferber

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As a book makes its journey from the writer’s keyboard to the marketplace, one professional plays a critical role—the editor. Editors work intimately with authors to improve their work, but that is only part of their job: they first must choose what to publish, and then lead the publisher’s effort to market each book. Peter Ginna, former publisher of Bloomsbury Press, joined by literary agent Gail Ross, executive editor Cal Morgan of Riverhead, and executive editor Susan Ferber of Oxford University Press, will discuss such questions as: How do editors make publishing decisions? What makes a good author-editor relationship? And what is the future for editors, agents, and authors in a fast-changing publishing industry?
