The magazine editor must know how to select and edit manuscripts, plan issues, and schedule and produce the magazine. But that is only part of the editor’s job. In this information-packed editing manual, you’ll also learn how to develop your magazine’s profile, work with writers, write effective callouts, titles, and side bars, conduct reader research, and solve common manuscript problems.
Also included are sample production and article planning charts, sample article assignment letters, and other forms which may be adapted for use. Several articles are also included in a comprehensive appendix of resource materials and information.
