Getting Started as a Freelance Copyeditor

Want to become a freelance copyeditor? Maybe you're ready to leave the corporate world or you'd like to have the flexibility that working for yourself can offer. How do you market yourself to establish and build your business? Do you know what skills you need, and what resources are available for you to develop those skills? What computer resources will you need? And what about money—how do you charge for your work, budget for the slow periods, and deal with invoicing and contracts?

To purchase this information-packed booklet by credit card or bank-account debit for only U.S.$40.00, go to the "Payment" section here. When you are prompted for an invoice number, type Getting Started. Then either click the credit-card icon or press the Enter key on your keyboard. This will take you to a new page where you will complete the transaction. January 2024 news: I am in the process of updating the booklet. I will alert you via this page when the updated version is ready.

If you do not receive the booklet within 24 hours of making payment, please use the contact form, but only after you check your e-mail junk or spam folder to see whether the booklet and related e-mail ended up there.
