About the Los Angeles Area Chapter

Welcome to the Los Angeles Area EFA Chapter page. EFA-LA is open to all EFA members in the Los Angeles area. If you fall a little outside the area—from the desert to the sea—consider yourself welcome too.

We will continue to have virtual meetings until it is safe to have functions in person.

END-OF-SUMMER SOCIAL: Co-coordinator Lynn Varon will be hosting an in-person social for the Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo areas on Thursday, September 15 at 4 pm. This networking event will be at Pickles Deli in Newbury Park. Outdoor seating will be available.

PREVIOUS CHAPTER MEETING: Our summer chapter meeting was a joint all-Cal Zoom shindig on July 14. The guest speaker was best-selling crime novelist Tod Goldberg, who spoke on the experience of working with editors from an author’s perspective. His informative and entertaining presentation was well attended.

FALL CHAPTER MEETING: Our fall chapter meeting will be a Zoom event on Wednesday, October 19 from 4-5:30 pm (Pacific time). Karla Olson, book publisher at Patagonia, and her colleague Carin Knutson, managing editor of copybase and proofing, will discuss what the freelance editorial professional needs to know about the publishing industry’s move to all-digital editing and proofing.
