Editorial Arts Academy was founded by us, longtime freelance book editors Nancy Marriott and Susannah Noel. Since the mid-1990s, we’ve enjoyed successful careers editing fiction, nonfiction, genre titles, self-help, and everything in between. We formed Editorial Arts Academy because we wanted to have the perfect answer to the question we’ve heard over and over through the years: “I’d love to become a freelance book editor, but how do I get started?”
