“Reinvent Your Business”—2014 Communication Central Conference

Communication Central cropped logoFor experienced freelance editors (and those just starting their business)

The Communication Central “Build Your Business” conference is a small but very helpful conference for editorial freelancers, and I recommend it to anyone trying to build their business or improve the way they do business. The conference is Sept. 26-27 in Rochester, NY, and the theme is “Be a Better Freelancer! (Re)Invent Your Business.”

[See my interview with conference organizer Ruth E. Thaler-Carter here. Note: She’s extended early-bird prices for the conference to August 10 for readers of this blog!]

A one-day Editorial Bootcamp Copyediting Intensive will be held after the main conference, on Sunday, September 28. This is not included in the conference registration fee, but you get a discount if you register for both the conference and the intensive. Here’s where to sign up: CC & EB registration.
