PI Courses: Non-Fiction Editing with Fergal Tobin
Venue: Dublin Chamber of Commerce, 7 Clare Street, Dublin 2
Date: 13th September 2016
Controlling the tone, helping the author with source attribution, translating academic concepts for popular audiences and, of course, maintaining accuracy and consistency are just some of the pitfalls inherent in editing non-fiction. Having been publishing director for Gill & Macmillan since 1994 until his recent retirement, Fergal Tobin has published over 2,000 titles including David McWilliams’ The Pope’s Children; Frank McDonald’s ground-breaking manifesto The Destruction of Dublin, Mary O’Rourke’s best-selling memoir Just Mary, Fintan O’Toole’s Irish Times Book of the Century; and, just recently, The Best of Miriam Lord published by the Irish Times under his new publishing role at the paper as Consultant Editor.
