Essential Link: Interview with New Yorker Copyeditor Mary Norris

Andy Ross at Red Room comes up with maybe the most informative article about the nuts and bolts of working at The New Yorker I can recall linking to. It's an interview with Mary Norris, New Yorker copyeditor. If you like The New Yorker, copyediting, or amusing women (I like all of those things), you'll find lots to enjoy here.

Norris is appearing at the copyediting master class at the New Yorker Festival, which I really hope I get to attend.

Now I'm worried that she'll read this post and find errors in it. Oh, boy....
