The editing tutorial

Two of my former students have decided to set themselves up as publishers. They want to publish a collection of short stories. I’ve given them quite a bit of advice as a publisher and they’re now going ahead.
Except that there was a sudden wobble.
Could they edit? They asked me for help but between duties for the university, my own writing and the editing duties I have for the various publishers with whom I work I don’t really have a lot of time. However, I have offered them a two hour tutorial – that will happen tomorrow. So as I have to get something ready for them I may as well share it more widely.
