Professional editor Roo Heins, Tokyo-based SWET stalwart in the 2006-2011 period, now edits and proofreads for a wide variety of clients from her base in northern Michigan. In 2016 she traveled literally around the world in 80-plus days, through Japan, China, Mongolia, Russia, Europe...and back to Michigan, while editing four books. How did she do it? What do you need? We'll get her to transport us out of our routines with tales of a traveling editor at this month’s Talk Shop.
