Hello Mr. Editor

So over the weekend the publisher I work for hosted a writer’s workshop and I was asked to read a few manuscripts and meet with some writers to give them feedback about their work.

I have to say, it was a very interesting and humbling experience. I found myself in a situation where the people I’m talking to look to me as an expert… Expert? Me? I just read stuff and try to make it better (and as a matter of fact, I just kept it simple and tried to do exactly that). I think I came up with some helpful advice for the people I worked with. I delved into some of my memories of fiction-writing class in school and treated them like fellow writers-which seemed like the best approach. I was really impressed by the amount of care and effort people can put into their projects. I learned something from each person I talked to based on their research habits or their passion for the subject. I hope everyone learned as much from me as I did from them.
