I don’t remember anymore how I found Mollie Reads (“Reads” isn’t her actual last name, by the way — it’s Turbeville). I think it was on Instagram. But on her Instagram profile, I watched her “Freelancing Q&A” highlight and then found myself on her YouTube channel where I’m pretty sure I’ve watched all her editing videos. Her book recommendations have totally changed my editing game and I’m so grateful to have found such a helpful person on the internet.
Because I’m nice and like to share, I decided to interview Mollie, so you can benefit from some of her excellent freelancing (especially if you’re an editor) advice. We talked about everything from how she got started, finding clients, setting rates, and her favorite editing resources. You’re in for a treat!
