Looking for an Editor?

A professional editor can supplement your regular staff, supervise a project from start to finish, or simply provide a few hours of expertise. Here’s how to find the editor you need:

  1. Contact the BC Branch Job Hotline Coordinator at bchotline@editors.ca. Our hotline coordinator will broadcast your request to our 200+ BC members. An interested—and available—editor will then contact you. Please include as much detail as possible about your project and the type(s) of editing you’re looking for.
  2. Search EAC/ACR’s Online Directory of Editors and contact the candidates you’re interested in directly.

More helpful advice can be found by taking a look at the EAC’s Hire an Editor page.
