  • Software and hardware information
  • Encouragement in starting/maintaining your editorial business

  • A place to talk to other editors about the editing life

We’ve got all that and more during our Monday night/Friday morning EFA chats. Join in the discussion on Zoom!

Who can join?

Any EFA member who lives in or near CT.  Anyone interested in learning more about the EFA and the benefits of joining is welcome to attend. If that’s you, let us know!

Is it free?

Membership in the chapter is free, although of course the required EFA membership does have an associated fee.

There are no obligations for being in the chapter. Attendance at meetings is optional.

Why join?

You’ll get to meet and network with other professionals in your industry and in your area. Freelancing can be lonely, but it doesn’t have to be.

How do I join?

Send an email to Faith Williams, chapter coordinator, at chap_connecticut@the-efa.org.

Meetings: During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved to Zoom meetings. Now that many of us are vaccinated and ready to be in-person, we will be adding one in-person social event each month.If specifics are not listed on the EFA Event site, please contact me to confirm the next meeting dates.

We meet virtually on the first Monday of the month at 7 pm, and the Friday of that week at 10 am.

We meet virtually on the third Monday of the month at 7 pm, and will pick a place to socialize in-person (coffee break or lunch) the Friday of that week.

Mondays: July 19, Aug. 2, Aug. 16

Fridays: July 23 In-Person; Aug. 6 via Zoom; Aug. 20 In-Person
Zoom sign-in information is static (the log-in for Monday nights are always the same; the log-in for Friday mornings are always the same), but if you haven’t yet attended or lost your information, let me know and I will email it to you.
