"Highly recommended: On Editing is indispensable reading for anyone who is or wants to be a writer. Every desk should have a copy!" - Dr Samantha J. Rayner, Director of the Centre for Publishing, UCL "On Editing is a feast with many courses. When you have finished this book, you will feel encouraged, empowered, and indomitable. If you are writing-or editing-a novel, you could do no better than to have this book by your side. Comprehensive, easily digestible, it is a classic in the making." - Shaye Areheart, Director of the Columbia Publishing Course Writing a novel is a magical but often difficult journey; and when your first draft is complete, that journey's not over. As the editing process gets underway, authors often find themselves in unfamiliar territory. What does it mean to 'map your plot'? How do you know if you're 'head-hopping'? When is your novel ready to send out to agents, and how do you make each submission count? Written by the team behind one of the world's most successful literary consultancies, On Editing will show you how to master the self-edit. You will learn to compose, draft, and edit while sharpening your writing and ensuring that your novel is structurally sound, authentic, well-written, and ready for submission. On Editing will help you harness your creative potential, transform the way you think about your writing, and revolutionise your editorial process. "It's easy for writers to be overwhelmed by the technicalities of writing, editing and getting published, but Helen Corner-Bryant and Kathryn Price share their decades of experience nurturing writers in On Editing. They know all the problems and how to fix them - including many you might not even think of - and explain it all in a clean, jargon-free, way that demystifies the whole process, with infectious enthusiasm that will have you ready, eager and bursting with the confidence to take your writing to the next level." - Writing Magazine

Goringer’s brilliant new work dedicates a chapter to each of the main types of RNA editing – the very first volume to do so. All of the sections here have been written by experts in the various research areas and a specific focus is put on the correlation between RNA structure and function, as well as on the complex cellular machineries that catalyze the different editing reactions. This leads to a "state of the art" compendium of our current knowledge on RNA editing.

Editing—the next step in writing once the key ideas are put on paper—can be difficult to teach. For teachers, it is often difficult to find lessons to engage students in the process. For students, editing is frequently an afterthought. In Key Strategies for Teaching Editing, the authors present interesting meaningful ways to teach students good editing skills. Leochko and Rossi also show how students who use these editing skills can become good writers. Key Strategies is divided into three sections: punctuation, grammar, and spelling. Each section has several lessons. Each lesson includes: Reference Sheet — mini-lesson about rules and usage Editing Sheet — authentic piece of writing that gives students opportunities to apply writing conventions in meaningful ways Answer Key — answers for the editing sheet

Film Editing: The Art of the Expressive offers an analysis of editing in the sound film that considers editing as an expressive strategy rather than a mere technique. It reveals that editing can be approached and studied in a similar way to other aspects of film such as mise-en-scene. Studies on editing or montage tend to focus on silent cinema, yet this book claims that an examination of editing should also consider the role of the soundtrack. The aim is to examine the way in which editing can make meaning, and the book addresses editing as part of a wider context, and as a crucial element of the overarching design and vision of a film. The book includes detailed studies of Scorsese's Raging Bull, Hitchcock's Rear Window and Godard's A Boul de Souffle.

Avid Editing is a comprehensive guide covering Avid Xpress Pro, XPress Pro HD, and Xpress DV. Due to the similarity of Avid's interface across product lines, it is also relevant for Media Composer and other systems. Suitable for beginning editors or experienced editors new to the Avid, the book provides step-by-step instructions for hundreds of editing tasks in jargon-free terms. The chapters guide you through an editing project, while the accompanying DVD provides narrative footage to download for immediate, hands-on practice. The book can be read and studied at home, or while sitting in front of an Avid, following the book's step-by-step instructions. More than a software manual, this book delves into general editing techniques, principles, and pitfalls. The author is an experienced teacher who will help you master the Avid as well as improve your overall editing skills. This edition covers working with HD, the 16:9 widescreen, and the powerful Script Integration tool. In addition, there's new coverage of the issues facing indie filmmaker who is trying to decide how to go from the DV stage (shooting on mini-DV or DVCAM formats) to theatrical distribution. As well, there is new material on using Avid in PAL regions.

Over the past twenty years, the field of scholarly editing has expanded and altered immeasurably. In Editing Documents and Texts Beth Luey has compiled for the first time 900 references from nearly 200 journals and books that explain how scholarly editors do their work and the theories behind their editing. Bridging the traditional gap between historical and literary editing, Luey surveys the relevant scholarship in all editorial fields and presents a thorough picture of the state of the discipline. Anyone interested in the editing of documents and texts--whether an undergraduate or graduate student, instructor, or a beginning or experienced editor--will find Editing Documents and Texts an indispensible reference.
