In search of an editorial post

I thought I would blog about my search for a part-time editorial role as I am currently looking for work while writing creatively as a novelist, with a view to finding a suitable agent and would like to use my proofreading skills, rather than lose them.

In the meantime, I shall continue to work in my capacity as associate editor for OPEN: Journal of Arts and Letters; a position I worked towards as an MA student while reading for my MA and working as a Sunday manager for a local charity, and work which I very much enjoy. By the way, we are currently looking for more volunteers so do check out Jeff Streeby on Linkedin if you are interested in Theatre.

Today my search has bought up two editorial posts. One is for Sift and requires an understanding of web content-management systems, which I have gained in my voluntary post, as well as offering 25 days holiday, flexible hybrid working and a good pension plan. The other is for television and requires a 45 hour week and knowledge of Avid Media Composer and DaVinci Resolve. Never heard of those and wonder how one would.

To be a paralegal conveyancing assistant you need, among other things, ‘acting skills’. You also need ‘patience’ and ‘compassion’. Well I have those skills. I found a vacancy for this role too, although you need 2 years conveyancing experience.

I can also take reasonable photographs and have included one with this blog for your delectation since tennis this afternoon did not involve rainbows, but blue skies.
