According to Education World, homeschooling has increased by 75% since 1999. Traditional textbook publishers have found this market, but not all of the market is textbooks or study guide. There are magazines, non-fiction books, fiction, and other books aimed at homeschoolers. While good editing is necessary for all publications, the homeschool market has some different criteria. Susan K. Stewart began homeschooling in 1981, before it became fashionable, and has seen the successes and the failures. She will provide hints and tips on the uniqueness of editing in this area.
Susan K. Stewart has twenty years of experience proofreading and editing. Her projects include magazines, books, and e-books. She specializes in homeschool products and producing e-books. Susan has been editor of The Parent Educator Magazine, blog content manager, published three books, and currently serves as Communications Adviser for Christian Home Educators Association of California. Susan also teaches writing and editing workshops online and in person. www.practicalinspirations.com.
