Write/Edit for Hentzenwerke
So You Want to be a Tech Editor?
Just like with an author, your first job is to read
through all of this. You’ll be much more effective if you understand the
book publishing process here as well as why we’re different, and what
we’re trying to accomplish. As you’ll see, the tech editor is a critical
part of the publishing process here. And as I’ve mentioned before, your
name goes on the cover too.
If you’ve already spoken to an author about a specific book, I’m sure
I’ll have heard about your interest already. If you’re just interested
in editing but don’t have a particular book you’re interested in, email
me with contact info, experience, and what type of topics you’re interested
in (and qualified to edit!) Most tech editors send me a resume so I can
see what type of projects they've worked on and for how long. I'll need
a bio from you for the book, so you might as well pull that together now.
