Sports editors perfect copy for newspapers, magazines, websites, and books.

Editors who are not steeped in sports knowledge will struggle with numbers, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling variations. A sports fan/reader knows that the lingo is “home run,” not “homerun;” “Super Bowl,” not “Superbowl;” and “0-for-4,” not “zero-for-four.” Experienced sports editors are able to recognize what’s right and what’s wrong to achieve consistency.

For your book, it’s very important to hire a sports editor with book editing experience. He or she knows the difference between writing for newspapers and websites (short, choppy sentences and paragraphs; AP Style) versus the longer, more literary phrasing and construction found in books (which must follow Chicago Manual of Style).
