Biografia breu
Renni Browne has been editing fiction and nonfiction for nearly fifty years. Before she became an editor for Scribner’s in 1966, she was a copy editor for Time-Life books, co-author of a novel, and assistant fiction editor for Woman’s Day. When she left Scribner’s she worked part-time for a paperback publisher and a literary agent while reviewing books for Kirkus and Library Journal.

In 1968 she became senior editor at Stein & Day, where she stayed seven years until she became a senior editor at William Morrow. Not allowed to take the time needed to edit the books she acquired, she dropped out of mainstream publishing in 1978 and founded The Editorial Department in 1980.

This is a fantastic book! It is very well laid out, there is absolutely no fluff. If you have read books on writing previously, you know many are filled with "cute" stories, fun facts about the author. Their own long winded why's and basically a lot of useless information that has to be fished through to get to the meat of the book. This isn't that book. I love how dense it is, and I know it will be a go to reference book for me. We make tabs out of washi tape so we could quick reference the chapters as needed! If you are a writer, editor, or just a reviewer I recommend giving this book a read. It gives great perspective on how to build a great story.… (més)

One of many writing books I read over three months. I'd read the first edition many, many years ago. Think this one is an improvement.
