Claudia Suzanne

"Editing with the Magical Musical Pass:

An Onscreen Editing Workshop"

This lively talk by a noted publishing professional adds a new dimension to any writer’s understanding of his or her craft. Claudia Suzanne shows us her effective technique through real-time editing on an overhead screen so we watch the process unfold.

 Claudia Suzanne is one of Southern California’s leading book-industry authorities. She has ghosted or edited over 130 titles in myriad nonfiction topics, fiction genres, legal subjects, and academic fields, and has authored four of her own books. One of these, This Business of Books (4th Edition), is considered a “standard of the industry” by college professors and librarians, and a 5th edition is in progress. She founded the Ghostwriting Certificate program (the only one of its kind) at California State University, Long Beach.
