More people are working as freelancers than ever before, and the Editorial Freelancers Association is growing: We now have approximately 3,000 members, including freelance editors, writers, proofreaders, indexers, translators, graphic designers, and other editorial professionals. Our members work with traditional publishers, government agencies, academic institutions, self-publishing authors, corporations, and nonprofits—on any project where words deliver a message.

EFA conferences allow you to network with colleagues and develop professionally—a rare opportunity for solo entrepreneurs. Our conferences have attracted more than 200 editorial freelancers from across North America and abroad. And you don’t have to be a member to attend!

SAVE THE DATE: Our in-person conference will take place August 17-19, 2023, at The Westin Alexandria Old Town.
