Our goal for the EFA Discussion List is to provide a respectful, friendly environment where editorial professionals can connect with one another, ask questions, and share ideas and feedback. It is a place for professional learning, support, collaboration, and brainstorming, and we welcome both new and longtime editorial freelancers.
By participating in the Discussion List, you are agreeing to the Code of Conduct below (effective March 29, 2021) as well as to the EFA’s Anti-Harassment Policy.
For technical help, see the end of this page.
Code of Conduct
Subscribing to the Discussion List
In My Account > Profile Editor, check "Yes" next to "Subscribe to the EFA Discussion List" to indicate that you’d like to join.
Look for an email from Groups.io within three business days. The invitation email will allow you to join either by replying via email or by clicking a link within the body of the email. If you accept the invitation by replying via email, your preferences will be automatically set to receive each individual message, while accepting via the link allows you to set your email preferences differently. If your invitation does not arrive, check your spam or junk folder and consider whitelisting the EFA's Groups.io email address: EFADiscussionList@EFAGroups.groups.io. If you still don’t find your invitation, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can remain a member of the Discussion List as long as you are an active member of the EFA and using the primary or alternate email address in your EFA Profile Editor. Lapsed members will be removed from the Discussion List.
