We are looking for a particularly smart, responsible and organized associate editor to join our growing team—particularly someone with a passion for cooking.
Editors will lend a hand in all things editorial, including acquisitions, copywriting and more. This person must be a strong and clear writer (a short writing test will be given). It is important candidates are savvy to current trends in cooking, house and home, crafts, other hobbies, health, and/or parenting. Please provide evidence of active participation in one or more of these categories, like selling goods through an Etsy store, or connections to the restaurant industry, for example. We are looking for enthusiasts who can find exceptional people doing the most interesting things in their fields. Please address these particular qualities in your cover letter. Bookstore experience should be noted and is seen as a big plus.
The salary is $35,000 annually, with yearly reviews. Benefits include 80% of healthcare policy coverage, a healthy personal time off policy and work-from-home Wednesdays. This is not a remote position. Candidates must work in our Salem office.
Candidates with a number of years of direct, hands-on experience in publishing in one or more of these categories may apply for a position as editor but will only be considered if their cover letter includes a salary requirement.
Page Street Publishing Co. publishes more than one hundred original titles a year spanning the range of lifestyle subjects, including cooking, health, parenting, craft, gardening, fitness and beauty, young adult and children’s books. It seeks out authors with exceptional talent—people not famous who should be—and presents their techniques and expertise in high-quality, full-color paperback originals, packed with step-by-step photos and illustrations. Page Street is distributed by Macmillan everywhere except Canada, where Manda does the sales and PGC handles the distribution. Each year we try to help local environmental causes, and last year we donated nearly 5% of our profits to local charity groups including The Trustees. We use only sustainable paper vendors and print with environmentally-friendly, soy-based ink. Page Street Publishing Co. was founded in 2012, has thirty-five employees and is located just outside of Boston.
Please send a cover letter and resume to email@example.com. Please include “Associate Editor/Nonfiction” in the subject of your email.
