I highly recommend Copyediting Fiction and Nonfiction Books: Principles & Mechanics! I now feel fully prepared to offer copyediting services. I also have the resources I need to set up my business and am a part of a large network of editors that I can continue to learn from. I really enjoyed getting to know my fellow students and my amazing instructors, NaNá and Susannah! Thanks so much!
Freelance Book Editing 101 is a huge game changer for me. I have always wanted to be a book editor but never knew how to actually be a book editor. This motivates me to jump in and put myself out there. I have the education (MFA) and some professional experience so now I just need to find the clients and build the business. THANK YOU!!!! I am not sure what I would do if my brother had not found your site.
Copyediting Principles & Mechanics was an excellent and enlightening look into the wide world of copyediting. NaNá and Susannah took the time to answer every question and gave us welcome feedback on assignments and really helpful advice on breaking into paid work. I looked forward to this class every week, as NaNá and Susannah were warm, friendly, very knowledgeable, and so generous with their experience in the field. Our class discussions were fun and informative and covered a tremendous amount of territory. Included were SO many useful resources on every aspect of copyediting. NaNá and Susannah, thank you both so much for all your time, kindness, and sharing your expertise.
