Copy Editing?

Do any of you folks out there know anything about copy editing?
My sister, who is mildly autistic, but an excellent editor, would like to find some kind of work as a copy editor.
We know next to nothing about how one would go about doing that, however - so any of you in the publishing industry with any advice - I would be very, deeply grateful.
Thank you.

I'm an editor...What exactly are you interested in knowing about copy editing? Our magazine has a whole (smalll) copyedit department. There are also freelance copyediting jobs out there too, where you bill by the hour. I've got a friend who does that sort of thing--I can ask her if there are some good sites out there for finding this kind of job, or if she just gets her work word of mouth.

Yes, i think freelancing is the way to go - she gets freaked out by big crowds of people or high-pressure environments.

And yes, any websites or publications or anything of that sort would be helpful. Thank you, very much.
