The SfEP has about 1,600 members and associates (mostly in the UK) providing editorial services to publishers and a wide range of companies, government agencies and other bodies.
The Society provides training and professional qualifications, and publishes the online Directory of Editorial Services provided by its members. The membership communicates with each other via a number of popular email discussion lists, and the Society publishes the bi-monthly magazine Editing Matters. The membership-only SfEPWiki is a growing repository of the Society's collective wisdom and experience.
Tip: The best time to join the SfEP is on 1 January – you'll pay the full subscription, plus the processing fee, but you won't have to make any further payments until 1 March, thus getting a subscription lasting 14 months for the price of 12. More details here.
