Next Master Plan Live: On Freelance Editing!

Future Episode Announcement | , | 1 Comment

Folks, this coming Saturday — August 2nd, 2014 — at 1pm Pacific/4pm Eastern/9pm UK, I’m going to do a live episode with two editing powerhouses:

  • Lynne Hardy: editor for Modiphius Entertainment, as well as for Cubicle 7 and Chivalry & Sorcery products (from the UK)
  • John Adamus: editor for Evil Hat Productions, various indie publishers for both RPGs and fiction (from the US)
  • Perhaps there will be a third guest! The future is an uncharted country.

We’re going to talk about what it means to be a freelance editor, mainly talking to new and prospective freelance editors out there, but also to writers who are wondering what freelance editors have to deal with. We’ll occasionally talk to the writer point-of-view at times, I’m sure, but we’re looking to focus on talking to new editors — they don’t get nearly as much focus as writers.

As always on Master Plan live, this will be a Hangout on the Air, a subsequent YouTube video, and an audio release later that day.

Are you need to freelance editing? Are you thinking about taking that plunge? Have you been doing it for a bit, and found questions you didn’t expect to ask? Help us fill an hour of air by writing in with your questions!

The Hangout is scheduled at: plus.google.com/u/0/events/c18qu6fntushsdc0uesrphan60o

If you have questions and won’t be able to watch it live (or if you just want to flag a question so it’s on my list), please comment on this post! Note that I stick closely to the topic at hand, so I might not get to your question if it’s not about licensing and creating the Atomic Robo RPG.
