MediaMonday: May 6, 2013 May 6, 2013

Posted by Carolyn Burns Bass in MediaMonday.

MediaMonday for May 6, 2013: Between Editor and Author. Source media from Slate interview between author Claire Messud and editor Robin Dresser, May 3, 2013. An excerpt follows:

Desser: Mostly I think as an editor you have to listen, to water the soil, and simply not get in the way. Sometimes you do say something completely idiotic, and there’s an explosion. Well, but maybe that might not be so terrible—if something great gets produced as a result. What do you think about that? How do you deal with the things I say that get stuck in your craw, maybe especially with this new book?

Chatscript from this MediaMonday is here.
