The Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) is a professional organisation based in the UK for editors and proofreaders – the people who make text accurate and clear. Formed in November 1988, the SfEP has more than 2,000 members and associates who provide editorial services to publishers and a wide range of other organisations and individuals. The SfEP promotes high editorial standards and works to uphold the professional status of editors and proofreaders.
The SfEP blog aims to provide useful and entertaining content to enhance the lives of anyone with a professional interest in proofreading or editing, and to provide advice on running a successful freelance business. Our posts are written by both long-experienced and new SfEP members, and invited guests, all united in their enthusiasm for everything to do with books and excellence in the written word. Our ideal readers are professional editors and proofreaders, those wishing to pursue a career in editing or proofreading, and anyone who uses editors and proofreaders.
