Dreamspinner Press is accepting expressions of interest for proofreaders
to process M/M romance publications in lengths from 5,000 to 150,000 words. Proofreaders should be able to read for misspellings, punctuation errors, typos, logic problems, and formatting errors. Dreamspinner Press edits to The Chicago Manual of Style conventions. While experience writing, editing, proofreading, and/or using CMOS is preferred, it is not required.
Proofreading is an unpaid contractor position. Contractors will receive proof galleys at no charge and a discount at the company store in exchange for quality services. Deadlines are set according to length of the work, ranging from five to ten days. Proofreaders are not at any time obligated to accept an assignment.
Interested persons will be asked to take a skills test for evaluation purposes and must sign a confidentiality agreement if offered the opportunity to proofread.
For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include "CONTRACTOR" in the subject line of your e-mail for proper consideration. Please include a summary of any applicable experience and/or a resume/CV.
Expressions of interest will be accepted for a limited time, depending on response.
This could be cool, get to read stuff before anyone else plus the groovy discount. :)
