Knowing What a Writer Knows

One sure-fire way to get a writer to quit writing for your newsletter, is to completely rewrite an article without discussing it with them beforehand. They will feel extremely insulted and as though their work is of little value to you. Unless you know what the writer knows about the subject, you may have also inadvertently changed the entire point of the story. Not sure what to do? Except for correcting glaring errors, go ahead and leave the story alone.
