Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), based in New York city, is a membership organization for independent professionals in the publishing industry. Members are editors, writers, indexers, proofreaders, researchers, independent publishers, translators, and others who offer a broad range of skills and specialties. Membership in EFA is one way to establish yourself as a professional freelance editor. To learn more about EFA membership and its many benefits (online and in-person classes, job and discussion lists, and so on) please visit www.the-efa.org.

EFA NorCal is one of many local EFA chapters nationwide. We meet monthly with the purpose of finding and strengthening connections among editors and those who use their diverse services in the Northern California area.

Already have plenty of cred in your field but want to write or edit in a different industry or genre? Curious about freelance editing as a career? Please join us. EFA members as well as interested nonmembers may join the Meetup group and attend meetings.

NorCal EFA holds its regularly scheduled meetings on the first Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 pm at ThinkHouse Collective at 1617 18th Street in downtown Sacramento.
