Do you have other editing jobs as well?
I am a great writer and took a couple of writing classes in college, but recently, I have taken on the editing position for our FRG and I have not had any experience editing, only having my own stuff editing. I need tips. Lots of them. I do a good job, but I have no formal training. I am really enjoying the newsletter and I I don't know if I would like a career in editing, but it is definately peaking my interest. Thanks.
I worked at the Miami Herald for about 6 months, didn't like the stressful atmosphere, so I quit.
I work here on FunAdvice part-time, and edit the school newspaper at the University of Miami as well.
In addition, I'm getting my Masters in something completely different -- Public Administration -- and I'm graduating in Dec.
Are you interested in an editing career?
I did get my Bachelor's in Print Journalism so I do have the formal training. If you have any specific questions you want answered, feel free to shoot me a Fun Mail.
