Editorial Freelancers Association Hosts International Conference in Virginia

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - March 21, 2023 - PRLog -- The Editorial Freelancers Association is pleased to announce that Cecilia Tan is one of the keynote speakers for EFACON 2023, our upcoming international convention, August 17 – 19 in Alexandria, Virginia. The conference venue will be the Westin Alexandria Old Town, marking the return of the in-person convention for the EFA. "Early Bird" registration is now open; visit our registration page to secure your spot at the best rates during our Early Bird period (through April 17).

"EFA members have been meeting virtually for years to help each other's freelancing careers," says Cody Sisco, EFA co-executive. "The conference is an exciting opportunity to re-convene in-person, solidify longstanding relationships, and to start and cultivate new ones. We're going big with fun, valuable learning and networking sessions and our keynotes are going to wow everyone."

Cecilia Tan is the Director of Publications for SABR (Society for American Baseball Research) and the founder of Circlet Press (purveyors of erotic science fiction/fantasy), as well as an award-winning novelist and short story writer. She has edited books and anthologies for numerous publishers ranging from the Baseball Prospectus annual (Wiley) to Sex In The System (Carroll & Graf), and was inducted in 2010 into the GLBT Writers and Editors Hall of Fame at the Saints & Sinners Literary Festival. When she's not writing or editing something in her home office, she can be found writing and editing while traveling the world.

"Freelancers often swoop in to save the day. But what's the billing rate for 'heroism'?" – Cecilia Tan

Offering a rare opportunity for solopreneurs, the Editorial Freelancers Association Conference is a gathering where freelance editors, proofreaders, literary coaches, researchers, writers, and other editorial professionals can engage in networking, professional development, and camaraderie. EFACON 2023 is expected to draw hundreds of editorial freelancers from across North America and abroad.

"We are finally going to be able to gather in-person for EFACON 2023 for networking, learning, and growth," says Katy Grenfell, EFA co-executive. "We are aiming for BIG fun, starting with our excellent group of keynote speakers. I think they are going to bring this convention to the next level."

The EFA is a national non-profit professional organization with over 3,200 members, including copyeditors, developmental editors, proofreaders, literary coaches, researchers, writers, project managers, and other editorial professionals. Our members work for traditional publishers, government agencies, academic institutions, self-publishing authors, corporations, and nonprofits—anywhere words deliver the message.
