I think it would be really fun to be an acquisitions editor. I love the idea of finding new talented writers and publishing their books.
It must be a rewarding and satisfying job because you are giving someone the chance to be published for the first time which has to be thrilling.
I know that acquisitions editors sometimes offer classes on how to get published and develop a winning manuscript. An acquisitions editor named Eddie Jones has a site called Writer’s Coach which offers classes on how to develop a manuscript and book proposal that will sell.
He also offers a free fifteen minute consultation online in order to provide you feedback on your writing skills and your market potential.
