A Book Apart

Join Our Editorial Team

Do you love A Book Apart’s work? Do you enjoy helping others to shape their words? Consider joining our editorial team!

ABA editors ensure that our books are approachable, understandable, inclusive, practical, and actionable for web workers. We help authors to craft well-written texts that express their ideas and honor their voices. We want to hear from:

  • Developmental editors: Book strategy, concept development, narrative and structure
  • Line editors: Sentence-level craft and writing style
  • Copyeditors: Grammar, syntax, word choice, fact-checking
  • Proofreaders: Styling, formatting, punctuation

Proofreader and copyeditor roles are perfect for content designers and UX writers; dev and line editor roles are great for IAs and strategists. All roles are excellent for anyone in tech with strong communication skills, excellent attention to detail, and a desire to supplement full-time income (or multiple freelance clients) with the occasional side project.

The time commitment runs 10-15 hours a week, a few weeks at a time, a few times a year. Copyedits and proofing will pay $55/hr, and dev and line edits will pay $60/hr. Our team is entirely freelance and part-time.

We are particularly interested in hearing from Black, brown, Indigenous, and AAPI folks. We want our editorial team to express the same range of identities that we see in our readership.
