Editor Series: Richard Clark Asks: “What Can You Give the World That No One Else Can?”

This year I'm starting an occasional series of interviews with editors. I've had the privilege of knowing, writing for, and learning from many fantastic editors in my writing career. In my view, good writers are good because they have good editors. Today I interview Richard Clark, the online managing editor of Christianity Today. CT has meant much to me, allowing me opportunities and a platform to grow as a writer. Richard is an incredibly gifted writer and editor. Prior to that he helped found and edit Christ and Pop Culture.

In my view, good writers are good because they have good editors. Today I interview the literary editor of First Things, Matthew Schmitz. First Things is a terrific publication. I try to read most of the articles in every issue. It stimulates thinking on culture, faith, and life. I've had the honor of writing for them. Today I ask Matthew to answers some questions about his writing and editing approach. Dan Darling: Let's talk about your calling. Has writing and editing been a lifetime pursuit or something you picked up late in life? And if so, what first interested in you in words?  Matthew Schmitz: My earliest ambition was to be either an electrician like my father, or an astronaut. Over time, my ambitions dimmed, and...
