Storey Publishing, a leading publisher of do-it-yourself technique books, seeks an enthusiastic editor with hands-on experience in crafts (including knitting, crochet, and sewing) and backyard building to acquire and edit 6-8 books annually. The successful candidate will have strong engagement with the online craft community and an ability to identify and network with a diverse range of crafters with strong platforms and unique approaches.
The position requires: an ability to originate book ideas, develop strong positioning statements and well-honed proposals; work collaboratively with authors, editors, and art directors; provide in-depth editing and writing support to first-time authors; and conceive new formats and creative approaches to topics.
Ideally the candidate will be available to work in the North Adams, MA office two days per week, but we may consider remote arrangements.
