Editors Directory

The Editors Directory is a national directory of freelance editors. All Professional Members are eligible to subscribe for an entry in the Editors Directory. To create a new entry in the Editors Directory, email members@iped-editors.org in the first instance. Once an editor has subscribed to the directory, they will be asked to complete additional details for online listing. The fee for this AUD 60 per annum and can be paid through the IPEd member portal.

Reciprocal Membership

IPEd has a reciprocal membership agreement with Editors Canada and the US-based Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), allowing members of IPEd to register for Editors Canada and EFA conferences, webinars and online training at the same price as Editors Canada or EFA members, and vice-versa.

Find an editor

IPEd has established the Editors Directory. Clients can search the directory for freelance editors using specific criteria. These will identify editors that have specific interests, skills or experience in certain areas.
