As technical editors, how do we know where to focus our limited time? What if we could work with writers to communicate expectations and figure out the scope of work on a project? Well, we can!

Join us as Li-At Rathbun discusses levels of editing—the common language that can help us set expectations, focus our energies, and limit our distractions. Li-At will define common levels of editing and discuss various aspects that affect how we tackle projects.
