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!
Acquisitions and Development Editor
