The Professional Editors Network is for editors, writers, indexers, and others who work with words—in the Twin Cities and beyond.

How do you get enough work to keep your freelance business operating? Or maybe you're seeking a full-time gig. Whether your goal is more freelance work or a staff job, how do you go about searching? In this discussion, you’ll learn about ways to find work that you may not have considered.

Lee Oglesby is a busy freelance book editor. Lee started her freelance career in 2018 after seven years as an in-house editor. She ditched her office job for more flexibility and the opportunity to be more selective about the books she edits.

Susan Stehling got her start because of a staffing agency. Susan started her freelance business in 2017 after a career in Minnesota’s nonprofit and foundation community. When a staffing agency found her profile on LinkedIn, her business took off in an unexpected direction.
