Please note that we are not currently looking for more editors.
Working in isolation is tough. We get that and want to provide the freelance environment you’ve always dreamed of, complete with conversation, learning opportunities, and camaraderie. We provide an editor-only forum where you can ask questions, get advice, and share your latest hilarious encounter with Word’s spell check. Our blog also features posts for you, including the latest Q&A from the Chicago Manual of Style, breakdowns of editorial choices, and updates from various style guides. Enjoy editing from home while still being part of a community.
To allow us to get to know you better, fill out the following form. Please also send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we’ve received this information, we will send you an editing test to complete.
If you pass the editing test, we will provide you with all necessary tax forms. Feel free to register for the editors’ forum at that point as well; this is where you can chat with fellow editors, ask questions, and get editing advice. Make this space your own!
After getting you all set up, we will match you with a project based on your preferences, top skills, and availability. We will send you the project and its terms, including what we will pay. No bidding required!
We do not negotiate payment. You can either accept or reject the project. We ask that you make your decision within 24 hours so that we may keep the project moving in a timely manner should you decide not to accept it.
On average, for a 50,000-word manuscript, we allow development projects a month to six weeks, copyediting projects three weeks, and proofreading two weeks.
Upon completion of the project, you will be paid in ten to fifteen business days. Paydays are the first and third Fridays of each month, and payment is based on initial word count, so there is no need to keep a time sheet.
If you have any questions, let us know!
