Live Editing: Nonfiction (with Sarah Grey)
September 9, 2018, 11:00 am–1:00 pm (BST)
SfEP National Conference, Lancaster, UK
In this hands-on, eye-opening workshop, Erin Brenner and Sarah Grey lead participants in editing passages from non-fiction texts. We’ll all mark up the same text, then compare notes and discuss our choices. How is it that different editors can make very different edits to the same text, without being ‘wrong’? What are the factors that determine how deeply we edit, what changes we make, what we look up, and how we approach different texts?

Using Business Information to Increase Your Profits
September 10, 2018, 11:45 am–12:45 pm (BST)
SfEP National Conference, Lancaster, UK
Do I charge enough? How many more clients do I need to make the money I want? Should I purchase a new computer or attend next year’s SfEP conference? Your editing business has a black box of information that will help you answer these questions and more.
In this session, you’ll learn how to decode your business’s black box and what to do with the information (aka, “data”) to earn more and maintain your sanity. Your business goals are unique to you, but the information you use to make smart decisions for your company is universal to every editing business—and the math isn’t hard!

Learn more about business data and why it’s important to your editing business in my guest post “Why Freelance Editors Should Write a Business Plan.
