Upcoming Events for November and December

What Does an Editor Do, Anyways?

(Besides Reject My Stories)

We know they’re real people, right? But sometimes we imagine them as fiendish ogres, just waiting to reject the brilliant work we send in. What does an editor REALLY do? Come take a peek at the people behind the big desk, who, as it turns out, just want to make wonderful books.
