I’ve been editing for free for a Wattpad Star (CrystalScherer) for a while now and really enjoy it. It got me thinking about getting a degree in English and becoming a professional editor/proofreader.
Currently, I am sixteen years old, have no certificate whatsoever, and don’t even use my real name - and I am fully aware of that. The editing will not happen for a few years, not until I am somewhat certified to do my job, instead of being a helpful amateur.
Long story short, is it possible to edit professionally and make money without using your real name? As normally, businesses require you to use your real name and such.
