Steven Bauer - Editor

Intuitive, expert editor with 30 yrs experience teaching fiction writing at a major university. Well-published, knowledgeable, honest, kind.

Overview

I love sentences. I love the music of words; John Updike was said to admire the phrase "four-door Ford," and--really--who could not? I love words' endless combinations and recombinations, the process of subordination, through which we instantly recognize what is at the heart of a particular sentence and what is ancillary to it. I love the way that sentences can be rewritten or restructured to change the emphasis. Word order is everything, though not everything is word order.

Annie Dillard writes, in the opening of The Writing Life, "When you write, you lay out a line of words. The line of words is a miner's pick, a woodcarver's gouge, a surgeon's probe. You wield it, and it digs a path you follow." She is right in this--though wrong about other things--and I like the precision of the tools she mentions. They are physical tools to deal with the physical world, and I love the physicality of words and the physical world they create. I love to help other writers say as clearly and cleanly and directly as possible what it is they want to say. Or, alternately, I love to help writers discover and celebrate their own particular vision of the language, their own way of writing sentences, their style.

I'm an expert developmental, line and copy editor.


I'm also the author of SATYRDAY (Putnam's), THE RIVER (Ace), AMAZING STORIES 1 & 2 (Ace), DAYLIGHT SAVINGS (Gibbs Smith), THE STRANGE AND WONDERFUL STORY OF ROBERT MCDOODLE (THE BOY WHO WANTED TO BE A DOG) (Simon &Schuster), and A CAT OF A DIFFERENT COLOR (Random House/Delacorte).
