If numbers and knitting make you happy then tech editing could be just your thing.
If you want to become a tech editor, there isn't a clear path. You could do a lot of trial-and-error, read a lot of incomplete posts about it, take classes that teach you some things but not others, and then try to convince designers to hire you. With a lot of time and a lot of patience that path can totally work. But there's got to be a better way, right?
I got started tech editing shortly after my first kiddo was born (nearly eight years ago). I was a stay-at-home-mom trying to find a way to earn a bit of income without needing to spend money on childcare. In the early days, the only free time I had was when he was napping but by the time he was 11 months old I had built up my business into a real source of income. But I knew that I could have gotten off to much better start if I had been able to get help understanding what was expected of me and how to do the best possible job for my clients. So, in March 2013, I decided to create that resource for others and launched Learn To Tech Edit. Since then I've taught hundreds of knitters to become tech editors and seen them grow and blossom and make new careers for themselves as they go on to work with designers, magazines, book publishers, and yarn companies.
So what makes my course so special? Well when you go through Learn To Tech Edit, you can become a tech editor that designers trust in just a couple months. Whether you're staying home with your kids or you want to start your own empire, this class will get you started.
Through the lessons and assignments (including 8 sample patterns), I will teach you the basic editing skills you need to start out as a tech editor.
WITH THIS COURSE, YOU CAN LEARN THE SKILLS AND TOOLS THAT YOU NEED TO CREATE A NEW CAREER PATH FOR YOURSELF.
