Re: editors and editing

I read a lot of online news and opinion about writing and publishing these days. And because—well, because I'm an editor, I guess—I continue to sigh and wish for more appreciation for the role of editing and editors. That is, people like you and me who spend our days editing text. (Managing and acquiring editors, like The New York Times's Bill Keller, who might bemoan the aggregation that I'm about to commit, tend to get more press.)

As editor Karalynn Ott asked on this blog last month, "Is it because our work, to most people, is invisible?"

Thus, this post. The first of many, I hope, to collect references relevant to editors and editing. 

Comments are open—any recent news you've read on editors and editing?
