A big thank you for the marvellous thing that is ELT Publishing Professionals. I am working on a really complex, fast-moving project and recruiting editors and authors via job spots at short notice has been an absolute lifesaver. We would certainly not have had time to go around contacting individuals in the usual way and I have also met some really talented freelancers in the process.
I've just started working on an editorial project after someone contacted me through your site. The project is right up my street and it seems very well organised, so I'm pretty happy with it. Thank you very much!
Claire Hart (Author & editor of print and digital ELT materials)
I was approached by a publisher very soon after signing up, so I can vouch for the effectiveness of being a member! Thanks!
Paul Ashe (educational consultant and teacher trainer)
I've just joined ... I like some of the features they offer on the new site, e.g. free resources, useful websites, chance to advertise yourself, etc. The Facebook group for members seems quite active already. I'd recommend joining.

Fantastic directory of ELT freelance professionals. This is THE place for publishing companies worldwide to find the 'right person for the right job'!

We announced the launch of ELT Publishing Professionals in January at the 2019 ELT Freelancers' Awayday in Oxford, and these are some of the reactions we received ...
I think it's a wonderful initiative! There's a real need for a more efficient way of matching publishers and freelancers, and both parties stand to benefit tremendously from such a system.
Alex Paramour (freelance writer)
I loved hearing about ELT Publishing Professionals – a brilliant idea. Really impressive! I'm sure it will be successful.
Evie Godowski (Director, Tom Dick and Debbie Productions)
I'm so excited about the freelance website – already thinking of my punchy one-liner for the profile!
Shona Rodger (freelance editor)
Your new venture sounds very exciting and is definitely something we would be interested in.
Jeff Zroback (Content Director, The Content Station)
The ideas you have for keeping people's entries updated and current are great. And it's also fab that you are including all sorts of ELT freelancers, not just editors and writers.
Claire Roberts (permissions consultant)
It looks awesome!! I can imagine it really taking off. I'm looking forward to being able to sign up!
Stephanie Howard (freelance project manager)
Your surprise announcement sounds genius and I can't wait to sign up.
