Meet Phon!

Hi, my fellow bookworms and word nerds. I’m Phon Baillie, the creator of Edit Republic.

For the last 20 years, I’ve been proofreading, editing, and teaching people around the globe how to turn their love for language into a successful editorial career.

If you’ve been wondering whether working with words is possible, I’m here to show you it is. (No degree or fancy school required.)

Like you, I started my editorial business without any connections or prior experience — just a deep love for reading and a desire to learn. And now? I run the business of my dreams and help people figure out how they can do the same thing!

At Edit Republic, I teach REAL industry skills to prep you like a pro and offer on-going support and guidance inside our student community.

I can’t wait to help you build your editorial business the easy way.

See you in class!
