Do any of my academic peeps have any experience working as freelance editors? Do you have any websites or listserv archives on the subject? I actually really love editing, and I'm thinking that it would be cool to advertise my services. I have some resources on what to charge and how to advertise, but I'm wondering about ethics. Can I create a page on my university website advertising my services? Should I keep it separate? Or is it typical for engineers and other scientists to mention their consulting work on their official university webspace?
And I imagine I should have a caveat about doing no editing for anyone associated with my university. Should I widen that to say that I will do no editing for anyone writing for any class at any university? I imagine it would be fine to edit theses and dissertations at other schools, or am I wrong?
Right now, I'm just thinking, just exploring options. If anyone has any advice, links, or experiences, I'd love to hear them.
