On Sept 7, we're doing "a little something different." Yes, our next forum will be a Saturday afternoon workshop that allows us time to cover more ground than in a typical weeknight forum. BAEF members only, but you must pre-register by Friday, August 23 (no walk-ins). Class size is limited.
NOTICE: We've reached full capacity for this workshop. If you would like to be on the waiting list, in case someone cancels, click here: BAEF 9/7/19 Workshop Pre-Registration
BAEF WORKSHOP: How to Run a Freelance Editing Business
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. BAEF members David Couzens and Jill O'Nan previously designed this comprehensive workshop for professional-minded editors through UC Berkeley Extension. David has now adapted their content for this BAEF session at our request, and he will conduct the workshop.
David Couzens, M.S., has more than 25 years of experience as a copyeditor, developmental editor, and consultant on projects ranging from journal articles to Web databases to online courses to thousand-page textbooks. A former research scientist, in-house production editor, and college instructor, he has created style guides; evaluated typesetting software and developed editing workflow processes; recruited, evaluated, and trained editors for scientific journals; and led editing workshops. Since 2008, he has been the South Bay coordinator for the Bay Area Editors' Forum.
Hope to see you there! Again, don't forget to pre-register: BAEF 9/7/19 Workshop Pre-Registration
