I’m lucky to work with several talented editors. Editorial folk aren’t someone you go shopping for often: you find a few good ones and you give them as much work as they can handle.
The trick, then, is what to do when other publishers come around and ask me who I’d recommend for editing their stuff. I know who, for sure — but they’re mine! You can’t have them! More seriously, work is a gas, and so it expands to fill the available editorial space. If I pointed you at Amanda or Ryan or Matt or Chad, there’s a decent chance their dance card’s full.
So I’m looking for editorial I could recommend to others (and maybe grab for Evil Hat work if the current roster of worthies is unavailable).
Comments here will be under special rules — all moderated. Comments shouldn’t be made unless they’re someone stepping up and saying “I’m an editor and I’m looking for work.”
I’ll approve comments of editors who address all of the following requirements:
- Provide links/details of your prior editorial experience; references from those jobs a plus.
- Are you a copy editor, content editor, or both? (If you don’t know the difference, you probably shouldn’t be answering.)
- What’s your editorial philosophy?
- How you can be contacted for more details or to offer work?
