There has been a small amendment to my About page: I have achieved an upgrade to intermediate member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
The Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) is a UK-based organisation for editorial professionals. Its aims are to ‘promote high editorial standards’, to ‘uphold the professional status of editors and proofreaders’, and to ‘encourage the use of services offered by SfEP members’.
The SfEP has an outstanding reputation for encouraging and promoting editorial excellence. I was therefore thrilled that the society’s admission panel judged that I have fulfilled the criteria for intermediate membership. I proved my training and experience, and the panel is satisfied with my professional competence.
And as a bonus, I am now allowed to use this membership logo:
If anyone reading this is thinking about upgrading, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to talk to someone who has been there and done it.
