Editors Directory

The Editors Directory (ED) is a directory of freelance editors. All Professional Members are eligible to subscribe for an entry in the ED. To create a new entry in the ED, email secretary@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 is  AUD60 per year and can be paid through the IPEd member portal.

Reciprocal Membership

IPEd has a reciprocal membership agreement with the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) in the UK that allows our Accredited Editors (AEs) and Distinguished Editors (DEs) to apply for CIEP professional membership without the need to fulfil their other criteria, and vice versa.

IPEd also 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.
