Hire and Work with an Editor

Nick Carrington, PhD. Writer and Editor

For the last ten years, I've been a writing instructor at Cedarville University. My creative and journalistic writing has appeared in Heart of Flesh Literary Journal, Servants of Grace, Outreach Magazine, Servants of Grace, and others. I also serve as an editor for Hope Blooms, the digital publication of the Early Pregnancy Loss Association. For the last few years, I have edited fiction for aspiring authors.  

Hello, I'm Nick Carrington, and God has given me a love of the written word. I have written fiction, articles, website content, and features, and have edited all of the same. My desire is for Christian writers to steward their gift well, writing both to serve God and others. 

In this course, I tell you why to seek an editor, how to find them, and what you'll likely pay. No book is as good as it could be without an experienced editor's touch.

The Course Curriculum

In this course, you will learn how to find and work with an editor.

By taking this course, you will learn:


1. Why you need an editor and what to complete before hiring one.

There's a big difference between your family or friends giving you feedback and a professional editor combing through your work for errors and other issues. In this module, we discuss what to complete before hiring an editor, who should read your work first, and why you should hire an editor in the first place.

Learn from a fellow believer, called to writing and editing in faith.

God gives us many responsibilities, including cultivating the talent He's instilled in each of us. My faith is the foundation for all my writing and editing, even when not working on projects directly related to the faith.

Learn from a fellow Christian writer who walks the talk.

I still have a lot to learn about the craft, but God has allowed me to edit many types of articles and books. I'll give you a clear understanding of an experience working with an editor.
