Want to edit professionally for academic authors?

This 90-minute webinar will introduce you to a career (or side gig) as a self-employed developmental editor for academic authors. In it, I'll cover what developmental editing is and how it fits into the academic publishing process for both journals and books. I'll also share the nuts and bolts of what developmental editors do with academic texts and how to acquire and work with clients.

While this webinar is geared toward people who want to work as developmental editors, it may also be useful for academic authors who want some tips on editing their own manuscripts.

Registration for the live webinar is now closed. By registering below you will receive access to the recording and transcript of the webinar when it is available.

Hi, I'm Laura Portwood-Stacer, developmental editor and consultant for academic authors. My business, Manuscript Works, has been around since 2015. For the past two years I've offered this webinar and a course on developmental editing through the Editorial Freelancers Association. I'm now offering the webinar and course independently and look forward to sharing knowledge and skills with new academic editors.
