Writers seeking feedback face a lot of options: Join a writers group? Enroll in a workshop? Attend a conference? Apply to MFA programs? This panel is for writers at any career stage who are curious about another option: working one-on-one with an independent editor.

They’ll discuss the services editors provide, finding the right editor for your work, making the most of the relationship, and more.
