Editorial Arts Academy Courses

Targeted courses for aspiring editors of trade fiction and nonfiction.

We're two freelance book editors who love what we do. We teach how you, too, can have a rewarding and flexible career as a professional reader.

Our courses only cover trade books — the kinds you'd buy at a bookstore or read for a book group (not academic, technical, or textbooks).

Classes cover:

  • How to determine which type of editing is right for you
  • Developmental editing: Story editing of fiction and literary nonfiction
  • Developmental editing and coaching of how-to/wellness/business books
  • Line editing: Getting the language just right
  • Copyediting and proofreading: Learning the rules, and breaking them, too
  • Setting up your business
  • Insider secrets of success
