Australian Editing Handbook, 2nd Editi/Flann, Elizabe/Paper/1740310888/S006-G
John Wiley & Sons Australia
The new and expanded second edition of The Australian Editing Handbook has been fully revised and updated to reflect the changes and challenges facing editors today.
More and more editorial work is undertaken on screen, and editors need to be able to respond to the demands of working with new technology. They are also editing for a wider range of media, including books (form poetry to fiction to technical texts), magazines, websites and online newsletters. The essential role of the editor is an important as ever; it is an integral part of the publishing process.
This book describes practical procedures for dealing with mark-up, illustrations, permissions, prelims and endmatter, proofreading, and even writing cover blurbs, interspersed with examples, useful confident liaison person and a good organiser, as well as being an arbiter of sense, structure, style and taste, a tactful yet firm adviser, and a watchdog on schedules and costs. Throughout the pages of this practical and authoritative handbook, the authors will show you how.
