Freelance Editor Online uses the Internet to advertise services and to make the initial connection with potential clients.

Sustainable editing

Online, on screen, on track

While a few editors and many writers still like to work on paper, the fact is that most writing, editing, and publishing are now done digitally. Ebooks and other kinds of digital text are fast outpacing conventional print forms; and even though an end product might still be hard copy, paper can be eliminated from the creative and production processes.

Sustainable freelance editingLike all environmentally aware editors that are on track for a sustainable future, Freelance Editor Online is a paper-free business. Editing is done on screen and returned via email. Clients can review edits, answer queries, and make all final revisions without ever printing a draft. Many projects are then published and distributed online to the growing number of users that receive and consume information and entertainment via electronic devices.
