The Editorial Freelancers Association Hosts International Conference in August

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - June 6, 2023 - PRLog -- Be a part of EFACON 2023, the Editorial Freelancers Association's upcoming international convention, August 17 – 19 in Alexandria, Virginia. The conference, featuring keynote speakers Dr. Cathy Hannabach, Cecilia Tan, and Ran Walker, will be held at the Westin Alexandria Old Town, marking the return of the in-person event for the EFA.

"EFACON 2023 is an exciting opportunity to learn, grow, network, and advance the profession of editorial freelancing," says Cody Sisco, EFA co-executive. "We're providing outstanding programming for our attendees and our keynotes are going to wow everyone. The conference is a great time to re-convene in person, solidify longstanding relationships, and start and cultivate new ones."

Offering a rare opportunity for solopreneurs, the Editorial Freelancers Association Conference provides freelance editors, proofreaders, literary coaches, researchers, writers, and other editorial professionals with the chance to engage in networking, professional development, and camaraderie. EFACON 2023 is expected to draw hundreds of editorial freelancers from across North America and abroad.

Conference sessions will cover a broad range of topics, from enhancing technical editorial skills to building professionalism and business savvy. The trickier issues of the day will also be addressed, with sessions on diversity and inclusion, artificial intelligence in writing and editing, and dealing with problematic content. Dozens of diverse presentations, workshops, and panel discussions will be presented, as well as plenty of opportunities for networking, socializing, and viewing vendor product demonstrations.

Increase your business acumen by exploring topics like rate setting, effective networking, finding reliable business metrics, and building a compelling website. Build your portfolio of professional skills with sessions on academic editing, indexing, book outlining, and essential skills and techniques for editorial professionals. Strengthen your professional relationships by learning more about client communications, relationship management, and editing-adjacent services.

While the conference welcomes nonmembers, EFA members do receive a substantial discount on conference registration. So if you are interested in becoming a member, join the EFA before you register to receive your member access code.
