Your Instructor

I started proofreading and editing with no connections or prior experience, so I know what it’s like to be at the beginning with nothing but your dreams and a love of reading.

Twenty years, 1800+ books, and over 15 industry niches later, I’ve discovered the exact steps that will take you from overwhelmed and Googling to confident and professional. In this masterclass, I’m sharing some important lessons I’ve learned about working as a freelance proofreader and editor, and these are things you need to know if you want to do it full time or as a side hustle — from home or anywhere.

As an experienced, working editor, I love helping people learn to do what I do! If you’re curious about growing your knowledge of publishing and communications, while also gaining some serious professional skills, then I can’t wait to help you get there.

See you in class!

We’ve taught thousands of students how to create a successful editorial business using our 4-step framework. Here's what they have to say:

“My days are filled with helping share other people’s stories and collaborating with creatives on projects I never could have dreamed about a few months ago. My business feels like this wonderful extension of myself, and I couldn’t be more happy to work my own schedule, be surrounded by words all day long, and have the real opportunity to make a difference in other people’s lives.”

Rachel Mercer

Mercer Editorial Services

“My editorial business gave me freedom – to earn, create my own schedule, set big goals and plan for things I would never have been able to afford by waiting on the same paycheck every month. I work how I want to when I want to, and I do what I love every day. That is freedom.”
Nadia Willie

“It gave me the confidence to start my own business because Phon provided easy step-by-step checklists to follow. I started my business at the same time as the course and without even completing the course yet, I already have £2,300 worth of work lined up for the next six weeks!”
Harriet James
“Running my business has given me so much more confidence than I’ve ever had before; I feel as if I can take on the world.”

“I love knowing I helped an author believe in themselves, get clear on their message, and make their book the best it could be. It’s also been amazing working from home and being able to shape my own schedule.”
