Editors needed

Hi everyone,

Here’s a bulletin from Susan Tierney at Schoolwide Publishing.

Dear writers, instructors, editors, and friends,

The new digital classroom library at Schoolwide, where I’ve been Acquisitions Editor now for almost six months, is moving apace. I’m now looking for freelance editors, with the potential for a long-term contract, and possibly a permanent editing position down the line.

The work would be to review and rate the children’s manuscript submissions we receive, and/or take on editing of specific projects. We’re publishing everything from K-8 (and a little higher), fiction and nonfiction. We also have several editorial projects underway for the library that will need editors.

We’d prefer 20+ hours a week. We’d begin working on a monthly contract basis, say three months, and then evaluate on both sides and proceed from there.

If you, or anyone you know, has the experience and interest in working as an editor for a growing project, please have them contact me, and include a résumé.

Thanks very much!

Susan Tierney
Acquisitions and Development Editor
Schoolwide, Inc.

  1. Interesting! Thanks for posting, David. I’m not sure I could give them the 20 hours they are looking for. I have not heard of this publisher before and researched them a little bit. Do you know if they are a paying market? It says nothing regarding payment in their submissions information. Thanks!
