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:
- Contact the Editors BC job hotline coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our hotline coordinator will broadcast your request to our 200+ branch 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.
- Search Editors Canada’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 Editors Canada’s Hire an Editor page.
