Rebecca Lee - How Words Get Good

About

Once upon a time, a writer had an idea. They wrote it down. But what happened next? Rebecca Lee, professional word-improver and Editorial Manager at Penguin Random House, leads us on the fascinating journey a book takes from an author’s brain to a bookshop shelf.

Learn the dark art of ghostwriters, uncover the hidden beauty of typesetting and discover the litany of little-known considerations that make a big impact: ellipses, indexes, hyphens, esoteric grammar and juicy errata slips. Join Lee to discover how books get made and words get good.
