How to Interview for Editorial

SYP Scotland

Getting your first job in editorial is no walk in the park! It's a highly sought after job within publishing and there is often lots of competition, particularly for entry level positions. However, there are some basic skills that you can work on before you head into your interview.

We're thrilled to be welcoming the lovely Jo Dingley from Canongate Books to lead a workshop on some of these skills and how you can hone them to make sure you perform your best when interviewing for editorial jobs. Jo will focus on how to perfect a reader report, present some essential proofreading knowledge and give an overview of how structural editing works.

Places are limited as it will be a hands on so don't delay on getting your tickets.
