Freelance Editor's Ink!

Some of you may have already noticed, but I recently built a new page for my blog called Freelance Editor's Ink! That is actually my new freelance editing business that I am running on the side of everything else!

I've been thinking about doing this for a really long time and now is my best chance! So, if you know anyone that needs a great editor or proofreader for both fiction and nonfiction, send them my way! My business cards are in the mail!!!

Here's the deal...

Freelance Editor:

Aubrie Parth

About Me:

I am a Freelance Editor and a Production Assistant/Proofreader for Knorr Marketing in Traverse City, Michigan. I graduated from Central Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in English with concentrated studies in both creative writing and grammar and two minors in art and history. I enjoy writing myself, but I truly love helping other writer’s words look their best.

For years, I have been a writer/editor for online writing communities, volunteering my efforts for young aspiring novelist and poets. I have also turned toward aiding student published works, such as the 1098 fiction collective magazine at Central Michigan University.

Now, I am currently aiding in editing for Malcolm J. Croan, an independent publisher and writer of Right Hand Up To God. The current piece will be Malcolm’s second novel, and it is children’s literature. I have also done ghost writing and proofreading for the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce and currently proofread for Knorr Marketing.

I enjoy working from home, all while contributing to maintaining the English language and molding better writers!

  1. I've been thinking about getting into editing, as well. It's the one thing in which I flourish during workshops. Not to take any business from you, of course.

    1. Of course not. I underdtand and you're allowed to do anything you want. I haven't gotten any bites yet, of course I have to filter out so much spam that who knows what I've missed, but I figured I would put it out there.

    2. If you come upon any good fiction writing jobs or maybe an editing job that you for some reason can't take, would you mind tipping me off?

    3. Sure thing, if I ever get really rolling with this. Like I mentioned, right now I haven't had any bites, but I imagine I will have to do more than simply post an ad on cr****list.

    4. if you google "writing jobs" or "editing jobs," you will find a site with ads posted. Like this one:
      Incidentally, I was looking up freelance stuff just a day before you posted this entry.
      And thanks for agreeing to tip me off! :) I've also found some nice writing contests that don't have entry fees, but do have great payoffs!

    5. Sounds good. I'll check it out!

  2. So good you're doing this Aubrie :) You're gonna be great, and it's not as if you haven't had the practice! :)

    1. Thank you. Yes, practice is good and I enjoy it so much. I can't wait to see some of your stuff!
