Welcome to The Editing Academy, where income seekers discover the keys to successfully becoming proofreaders and copyeditors.

Remote Lifestyle

Proofreading and copyediting is a location-independent opportunity. Join other successful freelancers who earn income from any location around the world. All you need is an occasional internet connection.

Work From Home

Do you just want to work at home? No problem! Becoming a proofreader and copyeditor means you can set your own hours and rates. Work in the mornings, evenings, or whatever time of day works for you.

Be Your Own Boss

Career flexibility is only a course away. Leave the rat race of the corporate world, become your own boss, and set your own hours. Become a proofreader and copyeditor as a full-time job or as a passionate hobby that brings in a little side income.

Wherever you fit into the vast range of people seeking more freedom as income earners, there’s a space for you here. Empty nesters, stay-at-home moms, millennials, part-time earners, full-time earners—all are welcome.

Learning to proofread and copyedit is an incredible skill that can benefit family and friends who are still in school or are writing the next great American novel. It’s also critical for keeping the writing industry on point with the tens of thousands of articles and books that are published every year.

What Is The Editing Academy?

The Editing Academy is a comprehensive program committed to helping job seekers who want to become a successful proofreader and copyeditor. Students can learn two of the four main levels of editing instead of just proofreading.

That means students have more opportunities to earn income after they’ve successfully completed the course, since copyediting is in much higher demand than just proofreading alone.

The Editing Academy teaches these two critical skills together to build a solid foundation for students to find more opportunities to earn money. Beyond the grammar fundamentals, we also teach some background information on the editing industry, steps to launch a freelance copyediting business, and where to find jobs.

Successful students earn certification upon completion of the final evaluation. Check out these top reasons for why you’ll enjoy learning how to proofread and copyedit with The Editing Academy.

You can enjoy a more flexible career that you can do from almost anywhere while leaving time to take care of what’s most important in your life.
