Check out this new question on the Chicago Manual of Style Web site. At first I took offense at the question, but then I read the answer!One of the major style manuals in the United States thinks that the EFA is worthy of referrals. And if you become a member (as I have been since 1995), your entry just might be the one that potential clients choose from the online member directory.
Q. I've been unable to find any competent freelance editors. Do you offer any editing services?
A. No, I'm sorry—we pretty much have our hands full here with Chicago's books. You might try the Web site of the Editorial Freelancers Association: http://www.the-efa.org/.
