October 2014 Program
Freelance Medical Editing
From articles about new techniques in arthroscopic surgery, to nursing textbooks, to trade books exploring neurology, and more – a freelance medical editor works on a wide range of texts.
On Tuesday, Katharine O’Moore-Klopf will speak with us about the opportunities and challenges within this diverse field. She will share her advice about how to get started, what sort of experience you will need to succeed as a medical or science editor, and how to find work in the field. She’ll also talk about working with authors whose first language is not English. Because Katharine is a freelance medical editor based in New York, she’ll be joining us via Google Hangout for an interactive program session.
Katharine O’Moore-Klopf has been in publishing since 1984 and has worked as a full-time freelance copy editor since 1995. She is a medical editor with a specialty in editing manuscripts written by non-native speakers of English. Her editing has helped researchers in more than 20 nations get published in more than 45 different medical journals. She can be found online at www.editor-mom.blogspot.com and www.kokedit.com.
