Pay Rate: $0.75 per review edited
City Book Review (San Francisco Book Review, Manhattan Book Review, Kids’ BookBuzz, and Tulsa Book Review) is currently looking for two experienced professional copy editors to complete our editing team. You’ll be responsible for checking our database daily to see which reviews have come in and need to be edited. Most reviews are between 175-200 words, and only take about two to three minutes to edit. Some, you won’t need to do a thing; others need a heavier edit. So it all evens out. We typically have around 600 reviews a month that need editing. We’re looking for a commitment of checking the database DAILY and editing at least 50 reviews a month.
We have a comprehensive Style Guide you’ll follow. Must be computer -and Internet-savvy to work in our database. It’s not rocket science, but you do need to be comfortable with following detailed instructions on how to filter the database for what you need.
We’re looking for professional editors, not someone who says “I’m pretty good with grammar.” You will be the last step before the review is published and, therefore, uphold the high standard we’ve come to be known for.
The more you edit, the more money you’ll make every month. It’s up to you.
