Upcoming Speaking Engagements

Want to learn something new about editing? Join Erin at one of her 2024 speaking engagements. Check back often for updates.

Northwest Editors Guild

On Thursday, May 9, at 4:00 p.m. PDT, Erin will be speaking to the Northwest Editors Guild. The topic will be “Handling Client Communications,” a part of the Editors Helping Editors Series. This event is now open to all editors and will not be recorded. Please register below to receive details for the Zoom meeting.


Working as a freelance editor effectively means you’re selling your hours to your clients. But each of us only has so many hours to sell—and we still need to sleep! Once you sell all your available work hours at your top rate, you have to think differently to grow your income.

In this session, you’ll learn all about editing agencies. What are they? What are the benefits and drawbacks of hiring other editors? What kind of systems do you need to expand? How can you make the transition? You’ll learn everything you need to decide whether starting an editing agency is the right move for you on June 23 at 2:45 PM – 3:45 PM.


On June 22, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM Learn from Other Editors. No two editors will edit the same paragraph the same way. What new tricks can you learn from fellow editors? We’ll complete several nonfiction editing exercises and compare corrections to learn from each other. There are no wrong answers!


On Tuesday, May 21, 2024 at 2:00 Atlantic | 1:00 Eastern | Noon Central | 11:00 Mountain | 10:00 Pacific
