An Introduction to Editing Corporate Communications
In some ways, editing for corporate clients is a little like working with individual authors. For instance, each one is unique and has their own style. But generally, corporate communications can call for a different editorial skill set. In this session, Cynthia Williams and Samantha Enslen discuss the standard editorial process for corporate communications, from what you need to know when you receive a request to what makes the editing process easier. They’ll also offer tips on how you might access these types of clients!
