To date, no group of professionals has come together to offer editorial services to businesses, organisations or individuals in the South Wales area. In this post, John Espirian explains how and why South Wales Editors came about.
I’ve been involved with the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) since 2009. Among many of the benefits offered by the SfEP is its local groups – a great way to meet like-minded editorial professionals who live and work nearby. There are now around 40 of these groups in the UK.
After being dormant for years, the South Wales local group was reawakened in early 2013. Since then, the group has gone from strength to strength.
We now meet regularly in Cardiff to discuss editing, proofreading, best practices and general issues about working in-house and as freelances.
