About «Editing Technique »
What are the components of great editing? Are there differences in editorial practices between the United States, Canada, and Australia? What kind of preparation should those hoping to become editors later in their careers obtain? What are the rewards and challenges of working as an editor or as a director of a press or poetry association? In this issue on Editing Technique of the Pennsylvania Literary Journal, I conducted interviews with four outstanding editors of critical and creative magazines to answer these questions. Interviewed Editors: Janet Brennan Croft, Editor of Mythlore; Professor Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Editor of Paterson Literary Review; Dr. Gillian Dooley, Editor of the Transnational Literature Journal; and Dr. Dina Ripsman Eylon, Editor of Women in Judaism: A Multidisciplinary Journal.
