Krawiec has worked for two decades as a ghost writer, development editor, and line editor. He has edited creative anthologies featuring the work of Pulitzer Prize winners, MacArthur Genius Award grantees and others. He has ghost-written several novels and memoirs which have been published, including one that was a Scholastic Book Fair featured selection.
My role as editor is to recognize what it is the writer is trying to do with their book, and offer specific advice on how to go about accomplishing that. Developmental editing focuses on problems with structure, narrative, character complexity and interaction, plot, point of view, weak areas of craft. Line editing is more focused on problems within each sentence. Ghost editing occurs when the author provides the basic plot and character outlines, and the ghost editor writes the actual story.
