EFA Members Add Their Expertise to ACES Conference

NEW YORK - March 22, 2017 - TelAve -- Members of the Editorial Freelancers Association will add their expertise as speakers and panel members at ACES 2017, the annual conference of the American Copy Editors Society. The ACES conference will be held March 23–25 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront in St. Petersburg, Florida. The EFA is one of the event sponsors.

"The EFA is looking forward to attending the ACES conference again this year. We always enjoy spending time with our ACES colleagues, some of whom are also EFA members," says Lindsey Alexander, EFA Events Subcommittee chairperson.

EFA members will speak on a number of topics, including working with self-publishers, the business of freelancing, networking, book design and construction, working with multicultural and multilingual audiences, and translation and localization. Presenters also will cover aspects of freelancing such as getting started, growing a client base and setting rates.

"I'm a member of both the EFA and ACES, two valuable organizations for editorial professionals," says Katharine O'Moore-Klopf. "Conference attendees will benefit from the training, skills and knowledge of the presenters." O'Moore-Klopf was the first freelancer to be awarded the Robinson Prize, named for Pam Robinson, co-founder and first president of ACES.
