BAEF | Workshop: How to Run a Freelance Editing Business

Hosted/Organized by: Bay Area Editors’ Forum

Learn to translate your editing skills into a thriving business. Study the basics of building a successful freelance practice, including office setup, client retention, fees, and tax documentation. Explore vital business topics you may not have considered before, such as defining your scope of work, dealing with difficult clients, and choosing a cost-effective employment model. Instructors David Couzens and Jill O’Nan designed this comprehensive workshop for professional-minded editors through UC Berkeley Extension. They have now adapted their content for a one-session BAEF workshop at our request.
