Event Details

Editorial Arts Academy presents a live workshop for people who want to turn their passion into profit and become a freelance book editor.

About the workshop:

“Great presentation! Felt so comfortable and accessible.”

“You two are a dynamic duo—great fun! I’m ready to assess and improve my skills, and start editing!”

“You were both great at answering questions. The personal experiences you shared were very valuable and encouraging.”

How the day will go:

  • Small-group exercises as well as short lectures, with plenty of time for Q&A and interacting with teachers/others
  • Lunch on your own, coffee/tea breaks provided, and as many stretch breaks as needed
  • Hands-on exercises so you can get feedback on your editing skills
  • A comprehensive resource list for further education, books, websites, forums, and professional associations in the editing field
  • Grammar and editing quizzes
  • Real-life reports from the front lines from two full-time, working freelancers

Who should attend:

  • Wordsmiths (aka “wordies”) who want to make a living from their passion
  • English majors or MFAs seeking a satisfying, flexible career in their area of expertise
  • Stay-at-home parents or caregivers who can’t commit to a 9-to-5 office job
  • Retirees who want to build on their teaching, journalism, or related career and bring in extra income from part-time work
  • Anyone who’s ever wondered how they could read and evaluate books for a living
