Freelance Editing: Enhancing the Writer’s Voice - podcast

As a writer, you may be interested in freelance editing opportunities. Before you jump into your first project, there is one essential tip that you must understand: editing requires you to set aside your own writing voice in order to enhance the author's. Editing director Sheryl Stebbins discusses the importance of preserving the author's voice while editing. She says that when you’re editing someone else’s work, you have to focus on the voice that they’re creating in their work, instead of your own. Before taking on an editing job, read three to five chapters of the material to determine if you can work with the author’s voice to enhance the project.
