Read and review manuscripts and proposals for a senior and an executive editor; work with authors on a daily basis to guide them through the editorial and production process; track changes between drafts with close reading and line editing
I've been doing freelance editorial work since the end of 2020 for a small agency, which has comprised mostly of reader's reports with the intent to recommend work for representation, editorial letters when needed, and drafting up query letters. The novels I've assessed have run the gamut, from speculative fiction, to fantasy, to epic family sagas.
Supported Simon Green; successfully pitched book ideas that netted the agency 33.7K in commission (225K worth of deals); worked collaboratively with A3's talent, digital, theatrical, TV, and film lit departments to create book opportunities for clients; edited proposals; helped build editorial submission lists.
Read scripts and tracked projects in theater, film, and TV; managed two agents' schedules; worked with casting offices, production offices, managers, and the Los Angeles branch on a daily basis; created and updated deal memos/handled contracts.
