Carol Fisher Saller, assistant managing editor at the Press and the editor of the Chicago Manual of Style Q&A, is featured in the latest installment of the Chicago Audio Works Podcast with her new book The Subversive Copy Editor: Advice from Chicago (or, How to Negotiate Good Relationships with Your Writers, Your Colleagues, and Yourself). In her book Saller distills her years of experience working with authors and their book manuscripts to produce a one-of-a-kind reference for copy editors that goes beyond the nuts and bolts of the job, to offer a detailed how-to on producing top quality writing, while maintaining positive and productive writer-editor relationships. For our podcast, Saller reads several passages as well as fields some classic questions from the Q&A. Listen in on the Chicago Audio Works Podcast.
