Types of Editors: Work Responsibilities

Editors do not perform or examine an author’s or writer’s work as soon as they have it. The work will be given on a specific type of editor (what type of editing the output requires). There are different types of editors whose roles vary from one another.

As writers continue to type the story they want to impart, paying particular attention to grammar and sentence structure is of little importance to them. As they are still writing their first draft they are more focused on delivering and developing the message they had in mind. After finishing the draft, that’s the time that they will check on the errors that the material may have. Detailed editing will be done by an editor.

The following are the various types of editors and each respective roles:
