Tips for Editors, By Editors

While we have some tips on this site that pertain to editor training, they aren't tips that come from student editors. This new series of tips will fill that void. They come from editors from the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in between. Follow along with the tips and if you're a current or former publication editor, I encourage you to add your tips in the comments at the bottom of the page.
