Editing As Income?

Recommended Posts

Some time back someone posted a website that hires editors for copy editing. I searched, but could not find it.

 

I'm considering a full retirement, but would like some income. Any suggestions as to how to go about getting started?

I would say, besides posting it on this site, that you might want to join other writing forums or groups. Like Facebook writing groups. And wherever you are on social media, just start announcing it whenever you're ready.

Ohhh sounds wonderful. ISo far I am enjoying retirement.....with a little part time work.

Do you mean finding clients or actually setting up the business?

I have a number of friends who run editing businesses. (None of them are getting rich but they seem to stay busy.)
My friend Jill is the editor for my friend Mike Duran:

I guess both. I've never been self-employed before.

 

I will check out the Facebook writing groups.

You have already proven your mettle here!  Let it be known you are available, and you'll be flooded with requests.

Try Reedsy, they post editors with different skills.  I bet you can make an income doing that. 
If I were any good at editing, I would certainly go into the business. I like writers, they are a special kind of people. So, going over their work would be fascinating, but I am a novice, not novel, writer and not a heavy reader. Can that be considered a pun?

I just downloaded Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations.  Oddly enough, my Kindle didn't get any heavier.😉

Thanks, Jeff!

I'd not heard about this platform before but it was easy to connect with and I love the feel. Don't know if my specialties will find much traction there, but being widely accessible can't hurt. 🙂
