This week we're participating in Small Press Week, headed by the wonderful people at Upper Rubber Boot Books. The first topic is "Secrets." See below for some excellent insights about our editors and their work.
Rhonda Parrish is an assistant editor for World Weaver Press, and the editor behind the Magical Menageries anthologies—that means FAE, CORVIDAE, SCARECROW, SIRENS, and the forthcoming EQUUS. At her blog, she talked in depth about what it means to be an editor for an anthology, and all the many steps that go into the publication process.

Kate Wolford is the editor of Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale Magazine, as well as the editor behind the anthologies KRAMPUSNACHT: TWELVE NIGHTS OF KRAMPUS, FROZEN FAIRY TALES, and HE SEES YOU WHEN HE'S CREEPIN': TALES OF KRAMPUS. She also annotated a book of lesser known fairy tales: BEYOND THE GLASS SLIPPER. On her blog, Kate talked about how to clean up your writing before you send it off to a publisher, and tricks for catching your own mistakes. Read the full blog post here: "Editing Your Submissions."

Sarena Ulibarri is editor-in-chief of World Weaver Press (as of March 2016), and the editor behind the SPECULATIVE STORY BITES anthology. In shameless imitation of Rhonda Parrish's blog post, she also blogged about what goes on behind the scenes of editing an anthology, this time delving into more detail about the nitty-gritty of publishing such as formatting, cover design, and (*gasp*) marketing.
