How do you decide what makes it in and what is left out when editing another's work? Do you need to be a writer to be a good editor? Three editors - Connie Levett (National Foreign Editor at Fairfax Media), Professor Mark Ledbury (Director of the Power Institute and editor of Fictions of Art History) and Amanda Card (guest editor of Brolga: an Australian Journal about Dance) - talk about the complexities and challenges of editing, in this panel discussion at the Macleay Museum.
Presented by Macleay Museum, the University of Sydney.
