SESSIONS ARE ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

What do editors look for in an author, both in their attention to craft and their professional interactions? It is important for writers to understand the various services editors offer to writers such as developmental, substantive and copy editing. Come and listen to our panelists share their experiences and insight on how to find and develop an effective relationship with an editor.

Steve Fahnestalk

Retired
Steve Fahnestalk's been in fandom for more than 40 years. That somehow qualifies him to spout off about SF/F subjects. Which he does with regularity in his Amazing® Stories Online column (www.amazingstoriesmag.com). He's also known for singing Beatles with Spider Robinson and T*A*M* Gordy. He's chaired and run a number of conventions, too. And he's written a couple of books and a number of stories.
