Classes for Editors is an online and live community of classes and support to train you to become a Freelance Book Editor.

When Susannah Noel and I met, we found we shared a dream: to teach others how they could prosper from their “word nerd” skills as we had been doing as successful freelance book editors for 20+ years each.  During that time, we’d both heard the same response when telling people about what we did: “I’d love to edit books–I know I’d be good at it–but I don’t know how to get started!”

So we developed a curriculum for training freelance book editors and started a community to support people who wanted to create income from their writing skills. Our first event was live in Montpelier VT on January 27, 2018, and we now have a consulting service, a live class series in copyediting and proofreading, and a live one-day workshop in June, 2018, in Burlington VT. Visit our website, for the update on our current live events and our full online curriculum coming in summer 2018, and other resources available for starting your new PT or FT career as a Freelance Book Editor.
