Job Description:

Experienced Freelance Proofreaders – America’s most respected corporate history book publisher seeks freelance proofreaders (not copy editors) who will:

  • confirm spelling and grammar
  • ensure consistency in word use, style, names, titles, etc.
  • verify correct word breaks
  • confirm page elements are reflective of design specifications.

Knowledge of Chicago Manual Style (CMS) required. Specific project proofreading guidelines, style, etc. will be provided for individual/specific projects and must be followed.  Proofreaders will work closely with in-house project editors. Must be able to accept chapters and/or complete manuscripts in PDF format via e-mail for proofreading purposes, and reflect required changes using the annotations features within the PDF (sticky note, highlight text, strikeout text, etc.).

We offer a rate of $2.50 per designed page. Designed pages feature narrative text, photographs with captions, and timeline entries. On average, pages can represent approximately 50% text (requiring actual proofreading) and 50% photographs (requiring no proofreading). This is a freelance, as-needed opportunity. Confirmation of proofreading skills required.
