EFA Discussion List

The EFA’s Discussion List is an open forum where members share their knowledge and questions about editorial freelancing and the freelance lifestyle. It is an invaluable source of lively, frank, informative, and respectful discussion.

To remain a member of the Discussion List, you must remain an active member of the EFA and the email address used on the Discussion List must match the primary email in your EFA profile. Administrators review the membership status of list participants regularly. If you are no longer a member of the EFA, or if the email address used on the list does not match the primary email address in your EFA profile, you will be dropped from the list.
