I'm writing an article about editing, and I'm curious about what the folks on this list think about the state of editing in the corporate world today.

I'm interested in any thoughts you have, but in particular, I have two questions:

1) Is your work edited by a dedicated editor?

2) If not, what strategies do you use to either peer-edit or self-edit your work?

Best regards,
