Founded by Karen Spiller, Karen White and best-selling ELT author Sue Kay (Inside Out, Reward Resource Packs, Focus) to help connect writers with publishers. It also publishes training ebooks.
Technology in the world of ELT is evolving rapidly. Helping freelance editors to evolve alongside it was the main aim when Karen White and I organised the recent Away-Day. We’d asked freelancers through Karen’s White Ink Limited Facebook page. ‘What would you like to see offered on an away-day?’ Time and time again came the reply ‘a focus on digital publishing’. Networking opportunities. A few sensible types said, ‘info on VAT, taxes and accounting,’ and one person said, ‘lunch’. And so the first ELT Freelancers’ Away-Day was born. It attracted mostly editors, but several designers and media researchers, a few authors and an audio producer also attended. Here’s a summary of four very useful sessions.
