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.
Our first chapter meeting for 2024 will take place on Tuesday, February 20 at 5 pm PT. Suzy Bills will give a presentation on pricing, “How to Win at the Pricing Game When You’re a Freelance Editor.” Many freelance editors struggle when deciding how much to charge and what pricing method to use. What if a potential client thinks your prices are too high? What if you underestimate the time needed to complete a project and will have to ask the client for more money or you’ll earn less than you planned on? This session will answer these and other questions about pricing so that you can feel confident when presenting your rates, increase your earnings, and overcome price objections.
Other chapter meetings planned for 2024:
We will have a chapter meeting on Thursday, May 23 at 2 pm PT with Nadia Geagea Pupa, who will give a presentation on manuscript evaluations.
For July, we are hoping to have a networking meeting with breakout groups. For October, we are planning a joint chapter meeting featuring a guest author. Further details will follow as plans are finalized.
Social for 2024
For 2024, we are looking to have a virtual general social with breakouts rather than individual socials for all the areas in Los Angeles and surrounding counties. Further information to come on all the details.
