Are you really an editor?

“If you`re an editor, then you should do everything in your power to help writers, not tear them down.” ~ Scott Biddulph

 

Writers and editors should be working together for the benefit of the publication to which they are both contributing, the trouble is the editor can see themselves as a guardian in the publication process rather than that of a partner.

 

Writers bring ideas to the table and editors make sure those ideas are presented in a way to make them read by a large audience, the relationship should be a partnership, not a war of words. A good editor must know and see grammar mistakes like a hawk, it is their job to correct the faux pas made by the writer and to ensure the publication benefits from the writer’s knowledge, how they treat the writer is all important.
