Description: Some may look at an Editor as a grammatical wizard, who proofreads a variety of text-based articles, manuscripts and other content for publication. That is only part of the truth. Editors are also responsible for the overall quality and content of a publication. They work with writers, artists and other creative staff members to make sure a publication is both informative and engaging. When a publication involves multiple writers, the Editor is responsible for streamlining the overall voice of the greater piece.
