Description:
Longtime manuscript editor and 'Chicago Manual of Style' guru Carol Fisher Saller has negotiated many a standoff between a writer and editor refusing to compromise on the rights and wrongs of prose styling. Saller realized that when these sides squared off, it was often the reader who lost. In her search for practical strategies for keeping the peace, 'The Subversive Copy Editor' was born. Saller s ideas struck a chord, and the little book with big advice quickly became a must-have reference for copy editors everywhere. In this second edition, Saller adds new chapters, on the dangers of allegiance to outdated grammar and style rules and on ways to stay current in language and technology. She expands her advice for writers on formatting manuscripts for publication, on self-editing, and on how not to be difficult.

The revised content reflects today s publishing practices while retaining the self-deprecating tone and sharp humor that helped make the first edition so popular. Saller maintains that through carefulness, transparency, and flexibility, editors can build trust and cooperation with writers. 'The Subversive Copy Editor' brings a refreshingly levelheaded approach to the classic battle between writer
