After taking six classes through the Christian PEN, I launched my freelance editing business in April, 2007. By October, I had enough editing clients to quit my day job and go full-time with editing, and I’ve never looked back. My work is always changing, always challenging, and always pleasurable. From mentoring beginning writers, to critiques, to giving clients “the works,” The Christian PEN has given me all the tools I lacked to help me start up and run a successful freelance editing business. I will never go back to punching a time clock again!—Jeanne Marie Leach
