You probably read the title and thought I was talking about working an edit room. But you would be wrong.
Part of being an editor, freelance editor, or small post house owner is selling yourself and your skills. Who will know how great you are or what you have to offer if you’re not getting the message out there?
Over at Found Read they have a series of articles on how to “work the room” when at a party or other social event. While some may view this as purely social, I believe it’s critical that you poses these skills on some level and continue to improve them over time.
They offer some very simple and practical tips that you can immediately put to use. The good news is that with enough practice, anybody can go from wall flower to life of the party.
