Up For Discussion: Really Bad Edit

editing-main.jpg A new feature bringing you highlights from the discussion boards. This week:
mad fingers: “Recently wrote a story for a magazine I won’t name. When I picked up the issue, I was mortified. The edit is awful. The piece peppered with sentences I didn’t write, as well as grammatical errors and embarrassing redundancies. The story was long, so they cut it for space, but now the transitions are, to put it mildly, woeful.”
Marie: “Unless there’s factual errors that need correction, I would let this go. But if you get another assignment from this magazine, insist on seeing the edit befor it goes to print. Then you can tactfully bring up what you object to.”
