An Ode to the Copy Editor

IMG_4515

In an article from The Huffington Post, an author dubs copy editors as “publishing’s unsung heroes.” And rightfully so! A copy editor can essentially “save the day” with their keen attention to detail by noticing any errors overseen by the author such as incongruent details, grammatical mistakes, and so much more. However, most of the time, copy editors aren’t acknowledged enough.

In publishing, it’s often forgotten about how long creating the finished product takes, and how it is really a team effort between the writer and their editor. Never underestimate the power of a great editor and always make sure to show yours some appreciation!
