Editing anyone?


I know some of you out there have an interest in getting into the business end of publishing as well as becoming authors so I thought I'd post this up in case any of you missed it on the DSP site.

We are specifically seeking editors who have an interest in the following categories of adult fiction published by us and our imprints: historical, high fantasy, horror, lesbian, ménage (M/F/M), and science fiction. The ideal editor is flexible in genre choice.

 Dreamspinner edits to The Chicago Manual of Style conventions, and experience with CMOS standards is required. Editors must sign a confidentiality agreement and will serve out a trial period to demonstrate skill levels. Please review the following materials before applying:


 For more information, e-mail edit@dreamspinnerpress.com. Please include “EDITOR” in the subject line of your e-mail for proper consideration. A resume/CV and summary of applicable experience is required.

 Expressions of interest will be accepted for a limited time, depending on response.

 Note: If you do not meet these specific qualifications, please consider joining us as a proofreader. This will allow us to see your current skills in action, get to know you, and let you get to know us.
