86. Best Practices for Hiring an Editor + Craftcation Recap

A picture of the editor Kathy Cornwell.

Kathy Cornwell has over 15 years of editorial experience across numerous fields, including the art and craft industry. She has experience writing blog posts, newsletters, worksheets, and other content for artists and other creative entrepreneurs.

Kathy has copyedited books, quilt patterns, brochures, websites, and many other types of creative content. She has over a decade of editing, writing, and business experience; hands-on experience with art and craft businesses as an employee as well as a hobbyist and a fervent collector; and she has kept up with technological changes as they’ve come.

In this episode, we discuss why and how Kathy was able to make a pivot in her business, what brand voice is and why it’s important for your business, and how to find an editor. We also recap the Craftcation conference.

  • She has worked in-house for creative businesses: In the past, she worked for several glassblowers, doing tasks such as production, shipping, sales, helping at craft shows, inventory, and teaching classes.
  • She talks about how getting a coach, networking, and taking courses allowed her to pivot.
  • We talk about making time for your hobbies; Kathy says crafts are good for the soul and brain.
  • Most comma mistakes: overuse of commas, inappropriate use of the dash, extra spaces, and the use of too many words or added information.
  • How to find an editor for your piece: know what you’re looking for (copy editing vs substantive editing), determine your budget; talk to a few editors and ask question, and provide them a small section to work on first to make sure they’re a good fit.
