We’re a tiny week away from launch, and one thing that has been constantly true since the

We come back to friends! Or at least, friends-prior-to-the-anthology, because our writers are so cool, I’d be honored to call them all friends. ^^ I met Caitlin the same way I met my co-editor, Brenda, through writerly forums. We even went to hike Mt. Adams together last year! So I’m super happy to host her here for the interview, and

Editing an Anthology: the Fun and the Painful

Claudie Arseneault/ September 24, 2015/ Editing, Publication, Wings of Renewal/ 0 comments

And we’re back, continuing the little story of Wings of Renewal. We have chosen our stories, written our acceptance and rejection letters, and all that’s left is the editing. “All.” Like that was little. It’s funny because I’m a published author. I rewrote Viral Airwaves a bunch of time as I wrote and revised and learned what it meant to write. I gave
