From the Reading Chair

Developmental editor Laurel Cohn shares insights, tips and advice on writing and editing your work, and discusses how to navigate the sometimes tricky terrain of the development phase, in order to reach your publishing goals

Pull up a seat and settle in

Over the last three decades and more I’ve worked with hundreds of writers, many of whom have gone on to be successfully published. Not one of them has ever said, ‘Oh, that was easier than I thought it would be!’

I don’t say this to put you off, but to be real with you about the challenges and the joys that are part of what it means to be a writer.

From the Reading Chair offers my perspective on some of the issues I see writers wrestle with both on the page, and off the page.
