We have a thriving community of publishing professionals–let’s connect!

The Editorial Freelancers Association does not have a local chapter in the Philadelphia area, but that’s about to change. This is an open call to freelance editors, writers, translators, indexers, proofreaders, researchers, graphic designers, and other editorial professionals to join us for happy hour drinks and conversation at National Mechanics on January 28th, 6 pm–8 pm.

All are welcome, no EFA membership required. We want to start brainstorming about what’s next and, of course, meet one another!

We hope you can make it, but if you can’t, let us know you’d like to stay connected. We’ll be planning more networking opportunities in 2014 and beyond.

You can also follow us on Twitter at @EFAPhilly!

Editorial Freelancers Happy Hour
Date: Tuesday, January 28
Time: 6 pm–8 pm
Location: National Mechanics Bar and Restaurant (22 S. 3rd St)


The Editorial Freelancers Association is a national not-for-profit organization, headquartered in New York City, run almost entirely by volunteers. EFA members are editors, writers, indexers, proofreaders, researchers, desktop publishers, translators, and others who offer a broad range of skills and specialties. Being a member provides you with publications and courses (both onsite and virtual), through which you can learn more about being a better editor or writer; our email discussion list, where members offer each other advice about the business of freelancing, tips on “fixing” knotty language problems, and resources for improving skills; and meeting events, which often focus on skill-building and resources members can use to enhance their professionalism.
