Welcome back to the ongoing 2021 UPPAA Virtual Conference series!  If you missed any of our cool lineup of speakers, we suggest you go to the conference archive page.  Next week we are featuring U.P. editor Brandy Thomas who will share about how to select the right type of editor for the task and unravel the mystery of what really happens when your manuscript gets edited.

What exactly does an editor do? What is the difference between a copyeditor, a proofreader, and a developmental editor? Brandy Thomas will be getting into the nuts and bolts of what an editor does and why every writer needs one. Not only will she explain the differences between types of editors, but also what to look for when selecting one and what is involved in the editing process.
