We love hearing from talented publishing professionals! If you are hoping to try your hand at working for us, please feel free to email your résumé and a note on your specialties to Desiree Johns: email@example.com.
Please put the following note in your subject line: “Freelance Application.”
If you are a cover or book-interior designer or work in a noneditorial area of book production or marketing, just note as much in your email cover letter and link to your portfolio if applicable. If you are an editor, we do have a testing process in addition to our review of your résumé and references, so you should be familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, and any other style guides relevant to your expertise. We have tests for line editing and developmental editing for both fiction and nonfiction.
In your cover letter, please note whether you are interested in fiction, nonfiction, or both, and whether you have nonfiction experience with heavy developmental editing and/or ghostwriting.
Lastly, please know that we are not always hiring, and we will let you know our status in that regard when you contact us, but we will keep your information on file for each time we expand our staff.
We do sometimes offer internships, so let us know if you’re interested in that if our regular staffing needs are full at this time.
