Canadian novelist, David Bergen wrote, “A mentor, a ‘teacher,’ is like an editor. I absolutely value my editor, who is my teacher.”

Making it Perfect

When it comes to writing, one plus one is greater than two. Nobody is perfect, not even the best writers. However, when developmental and copy editors partner with writers, imperfect text becomes art, art that engages readers in leaving their present time and place to learn new knowledge and skills. If high quality learning can truly improve the world, great editors have profound power.
