Skilled Black freelance editors can be hard for Black writers to find. Many writers are still being ripped off by self-proclaimed editors who couldn’t edit their way out of paper bags because they don’t know how to find or identify credible professionals. It can also be difficult at times for busy Black editors to reach new clients efficiently or inexpensively. This directory is designed to help combat all three problems.
Although I’d hosted a short list of editors on Black Writers for a couple of years, it offered only scant information. This directory offers full-page profiles on each editor with a photo, links to social media accounts and websites, contact information, and brief interviews to share more insight into our backgrounds, areas of expertise, and practice areas.
The directory includes editors of all kinds—not just editors of fiction and nonfiction. Editors specializing in academic, medical, legal, technical, and digital content editing are among those listed.
Applicants are required to meet the same criteria as other professional editors’ directories and must have professional-looking websites geared toward (or relating to) their editing services. In other words, they can’t offer editing through a site promoting their services as a life coach or realtor. They also must have a verifiable list of credits in the genres or specialties they claim.
