WRITERS ALERT! Pick the brain of professional editors from the hot new publishing book: What Editors Do: The Art, Craft, and Business of Book Editing.

From insider editing tricks of the trade, to working with an editor successfully, to navigating the stormy seas of publishing, this event will entertain and edify.

About the presenters:

Montclair’s own Book Doctors, David Henry Sterry & Arielle Eckstut, have helped hundreds of writers get successfully published. They are co-authors of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published: How To Write It, Sell It, and Market It… Successfully (Workman, 2010). Arielle has been a literary agent for over 20 years at The Levine Greenberg Literary Agency. She is the author of nine books and the co-founder of the iconic brand, LittleMissMatched. David is the best-selling author of 16 books. His first book has been translated into 10 languages and his latest book was featured on the cover of the Sunday New York Times Book Review. They’ve taught everywhere from Stanford University to Smith College. They’ve appeared everywhere from The New York Times to NPR’s Morning Edition to USA Today.

Peter Ginna was publisher & editorial director at Bloomsbury Press; held editorial positions at Oxford University Press and Crown Publishers. He taught editing in NYU’s publishing program, and comments on publishing at Doctor Syntax. Twitter: @DoctorSyntax
