The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is looking for a freelance copy editor with at least 10 years of experience editing long, fairly technical research reports. We will offer you a steady stream of contract assignments if you meet our requirements.
We’d like someone who knows the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style backward and forward and who is good at cross-checking technical data. You should also be expert in editing not only for grammar and style but also for clarity, brevity, and readability.
You must have at least a bachelor’s degree and at least 10 years of solid copy editing and substantive editing experience. You should also be proficient with a recent version of Microsoft Word. Although not required, we would particularly like to find someone who can manage major editorial and publication projects in addition to being an expert editor. Please also note if you are experienced in formatting Word documents on a PC.
