Alright, you wonderful people, I need help with something.
I'm writing a secondary character right now set in our Real World, and I want them to have a "go to the office every day" job that revolves around editing other people's writing in exchange for money. I'd also like at least some of the editing to be basic typo-checking stuff that the character could charitably outsource to a working-from-home pregnant teen -- either above or below the table, but I'd prefer above.
Having had zero experience as a professional editor, I'm not sure what kind of job -- if any -- exists to fill this literary gap. Suggestions/help welcome.
