I wish I’d had this course three years ago when I started my freelance writing journey! Writing is one thing, but writing for a living is something else entirely.
This course gives you the insights and confidence you need to handle clients, find work, set your prices, and so much more. It’ll hold your hand through what is often a bumpy journey – transitioning from writing for fun to writing professionally.
This course enabled me to kick off my new career. I owe so much to Knowadays.
“I’m now doing what I should have done years ago. And the support doesn’t end after qualification; the Knowadays team is still available to offer help and advice whenever I need it. This tuition does even more than it says on the tin.”
This course wasn’t just like reading through a textbook. It was interactive and packed with fascinating, engaging information which helped me stay focused!
“Before taking the course, my challenge was I didn’t know what a freelance writer needs to do their job properly. As a content strategist, I wanted to know how I could best support the freelance writers I was collaborating with. Thanks to the course I learned how to write a good brief and how a freelance writer should act and communicate with clients. Understanding it from their perspective was incredibly helpful for me.”

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Editing Course
Who can take this course?
Everyone is welcome to take the Becoming An Editor course. Although it’s not mandatory to take our Becoming A Proofreader course beforehand, it is highly recommended.
How long do I have to complete the course?
There is no time limit to complete Becoming An Editor, allowing you to learn at your own pace. You will also have lifetime access to the course.
Do I need specific qualifications to take this course?
You don’t need formal qualifications to take our Becoming An Editor course – only a desire to learn and a love of the written word.
What if English isn’t my first language?
Fluent second English language speakers are also encouraged to take the course. Please note that the final assessment does require an advanced understanding of written English.
I’ve already completed the Becoming A Proofreader course. Should I enrol in Becoming An Editor, too?
Although many people complete our Becoming A Proofreader course and go on to enjoy fulfilling freelance careers, our Becoming An Editor will help you refine your skills.
Becoming An Editor focuses on overall structure, content, and flow. But that’s just the beginning! Editing is often more subjective than proofreading, which is typically rules-based. Is the document organised? Are there contradictions, inconsistencies or factual errors? Is it right for the target audience?
If you want to work on more complex documents – and enjoy a higher earning potential – our Becoming An Editor course is the right choice. Success in both courses will give you more opportunities with our partner company, Proofed. For more details, please see our Guaranteed Work page.
If I successfully complete the Becoming An Editor course, am I guaranteed work with Proofed?
When you pass our Becoming A Proofreader course with a distinction (80% or more), you’ll have the chance to work with our partner company, Proofed, initially on a trial basis. A distinction in our Becoming A Proofreader course and a passing grade in our Becoming An Editor course will unlock enhanced Proofed opportunities. A passing grade only in our Becoming An Editor course does not guarantee work with Proofed.
Does it matter where I live?
You can be anywhere in the world! All you need is a computer (PC or Mac), an internet connection and Microsoft Word (2016 or later).
Please note that to work with Proofed, your country of residence must have a tax treaty with the United States Internal Revenue Service. These countries are listed here. For further information, please contact a financial advisor.
What language is the course in?
We offer our Becoming A Proofreader and Becoming An Editor courses in UK and US English. You will have the option to select your course language after purchase. If you would like us to add the UK version of the course to your account, let us know by emailing us at email@example.com.
