Society for Editors and Proofreaders

The Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) is the organisation that represents professional proofreaders and copy-editors. Their entry requirements and standards are very high and it isn’t possible to simply join.

New applicants are screened and must provide evidence of training and/or experience, without which a written exam must be taken in-house. For mentoring, specific SfEP training is compulsory and includes an assessment test which must be passed.

AF Proof and Word is a Professional Member of the SfEP.
