Super news for those of you hungry for practical advice about editorial freelancing – the Society for Editors and Proofreaders has launched a blog.
Says the SfEP: "The SfEP blog aims to provide useful and entertaining content to enhance the lives of anyone interested in proofreading or editing, while promoting the work and activities of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP)."
You don't have to be a member of the SfEP to contribute. More information about submission is available at Contribute to the blog.
The inaugural post is out now: Editing Fiction: An addiction or bête noire? (by Gale Winskill). Future posts will address a full range of subjects of interest to editors and proofreaders, newbies and old hands alike, so it's definitely one to bookmark.
Louise Harnby is a fiction line editor, copyeditor and proofreader who specializes in helping self-publishing writers prepare their novels for market.
She is the author of several books on business planning and marketing for editors, and runs online courses from within the Craft Your Editorial Fingerprint series. She is also an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and an Author Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
