Hello there, friends!
As many of you know, Sarah and Sylvia have been running Ex Libris together since early 2012 and freelanced separately before then. With a lot of hard work, support, and some good old-fashioned luck, we’ve grown our little editorial company that could into a thriving business.
Speaking of support, we’re now hoping to move toward the possibility of hiring subcontractors to help us out with a few projects here and there when things get busy. Are you a freelance editor with at least two years of professional experience? Are you looking to occasionally supplement your current schedule? If so, you could be just the person we’re looking for.
If this sounds like an opportunity you’d like to explore, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with:
- a PDF of your most up-to-date résumé
- a little about yourself and your experience as an editor
- a bit about your professional identity and goals
- what type(s) of editing (fiction, nonfiction, academic, etc.) and what levels of editing (proofreading, copyediting, developmental editing, etc.) you are most familiar with/you are hoping to work with.
If your credentials match up with what we’re looking for, we will ask you to provide a work sample or two and to perform a copyediting test. We will do our best to respond to everyone who applies, but depending on the number of responses we receive, this may or may not be possible. We expect to make our final decisions on or before October 31, 2014.
Please note: this is for contract work only, and we are expecting to have work available to subcontractors on an as-needed, part-time basis at most. Please do not expect a steady flow of new projects from this arrangement.
We look forward to hearing from you!
—Sarah & Sylvia
