      Quarterly print business journal/trade publication seeks a freelance professional copy editor/proofreader. Requirements include at least 10 years of professional copy editing experience as a publication copy editor. Must be a native English speaker (American or Canadian English), know AP style, and be a freelance professional. The ideal candidate has an eagle eye for not only text errors but also layout errors and inconsistencies. You hate when writers use "while" instead of "although," you cringe at hyphen stacks, and you can spot a double space in 8pt text from 10 feet. You are proficient with an electronic PDF editor (i.e. you don't manually edit on paper). Our previous copy editor, who was with us for nearly 10 years, took 10 to 15 hours—over the course of two weeks—to copy edit the 28-page journal using PDF mark-up software. Rate: $40-50 per hour depending on experience. Please send a link to your LinkedIn resume along with your hourly rate. You will be asked to copy edit a short article at no cost to demonstrate your skills. This exercise will also give you a sense of the type of material we produce. E-mail to: bemy.copyeditor@....
