Going Solo: Creating your freelance editorial business is a new 52-page guide to building a proofreading or copy-editing business from the ground up.
Written by my colleague Sue Littleford, owner of Apt Words and an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), the guide covers business planning, editorial knowledge acquisition, financial issues, client sourcing, and time management. (Note that the tax info is specific to the UK market.)
At only £6 for a hardcopy (£5 for a PDF), the guide is a must-have for anyone considering making a career transition to editorial freelancing.
