Sub editors

Don't get me wrong - I'm grateful whenever publications give us coverage. But since Rob and I have been on the receiving end of weird sub-editing more often than not - sub-editing that strips out all the jokes, changes the meaning of the writing and makes me look stupid - I did appreciate this email written by food critic Giles Cohen to his subs at The Times. Warning: contains plenty rudewords.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
