It’s comprised of 641 members who discuss the business with each other. Writers. Editors. Copyeditors and more.

While both are open to newish writers, if you’re a straight up beginner I’d go take a writing class or two first. There will be industry lingo that will make your head spin if you’re really green.

Make sure to request your service in digest format so you can look at the emails all at once when you have time, instead of them firing into your inbasket all throughout the day. BTW, I’m loving these things. Tailored news and tips straight to my door a few times a day.
