Editcetera director Barbara Fuller leads this discussion of opportunities for freelance editors to work with words in the San Francisco Bay Area. What kinds of jobs exist? What are possible sources of work, where can you find leads, and how can you make yourself stand out among the many freelancers competing for work?

The evening begins with a formal presentation and tips for increasing your workload. An informal question-and-answer session follows for participants who choose to stay. Handouts provide you with resources for follow-up depending on your interests and needs; specific job leads are not provided.

Barbara Fuller has worked in publishing since 1985. As director of Editcetera, she has helped connect freelance publishing professionals with hundreds of clients. Her personal clients have included the Administrative Office of the Courts, Computer Literacy Press, Encyclopaedia Britannica, HarperSanFrancisco, Jossey-Bass Publishers, the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, Sierra Club Books, Sierra magazine, Ten Speed Press, and many independent authors. She has taught writing and editing for UC Davis, UC Berkeley Extension, and private businesses, as well as for Editcetera. Her book, How to Start a Home-Based Editorial Services Business, will be published in May (Globe Pequot Press).
