Welcome to EditTeach.org's collection of tools for student and professional editors, who need to do many jobs well. Editors must be masters of the language, strong headline writers, creative designers, walking databanks about local and world affairs – in short, they must know a little about everything. The best editors know a lot about one thing. And those who teach editing must know not only all of this but also how to teach it to their students. Here you’ll find resources to become better content and word editors. You’ll also find information about a career in editing, as well as information for teachers and students. Have an idea that we should include? Send it to Deborah Gump.
