Welcome to Wolf Publications Mrs. Hensley&Mrs. Welker Senior Executive Editors What do editors do?
  • Editing is the process of selecting and preparing text used to convey information through the processes of correction, condensation, organization, and other modifications performed with an intention of producing a correct, consistent, accurate, and complete work.
  • The editing process often begins with the author's idea for the work itself, continuing as a collaboration between the author and the editors as the work is created. As such, editing is a practice that includes creative skills, human relations, and a precise set of methods.
  • The Situation This season, approximately 90 business-savvy contestants will compete, not only for a job with the Wolf Publications Organization, but for the prize of publishing a collection of nonfiction texts to represent our world-famous publications:
