FICTION EDITORS & PROOFREADERS NEEDED ASAP
Mainstream and genre fictionhttp://www.Book-Editing.com
The Book Editing Associates freelance network needs additional copy editors. Please see our site and mission statement before applying.
Applicants for these openings must pass our copyediting tests (average of 1 hour time investment). Failed tests are not marked and returned.
Editors work directly with clients and have an independent contractor status with the network coordinator/Internet marketer. Our copy editors set their own rates. Most of our full-time editors stay well booked and earn $40,000 - $60,000 (2011 & 2012). Many of our editors have been part of our network for over a decade. Priority will be given to editors who can make a long-term commitment to this network.
You must be 100% freelance (no day job). No exceptions.
5+ years of editing experience and a track record of published fiction (not self-published) that you have edited.
You must be willing to work with novice writers as a mentor.
Ability to check e-mail several times each day, including once per day on weekends.
(This is a high-volume network and our editors receive a consistent stream of work offers. Do not apply if you tend to stay busy and are only looking for "fill in" work.)
Dependable Internet connectivity (primary/secondary).
English must be your first language.
