The San Francisco Bay Area is an important center for publishing and other editorial opportunities, but competition for freelance work is stiff. Explore different types of editorial work, learn how to find leads, and discuss ways to make yourself stand out among the many freelancers who want the work.

The session begins with a formal presentation and tips for increasing your workload. An informal question-and-answer period 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, 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, and is the author of How to Start a Home-Based Editorial Services Business (Globe Pequot Press, 2013).
