Interested in Joining Girl Friday?
GFP is always happy to expand our pool of talented ghostwriters with experience in business, self-help, memoir, children's, food writing, and more. To see if you're a good fit, we require a book list, your résumé, and recent clips.
Copyediting and Proofreading
There are many editors out there with good gut instincts and a passion for the profession. At GFP, our copyeditors and proofreaders must also have traditional publishing experience and extensive knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, and Merriam-Webster.com. We ask that you send us your résumé, a brief cover letter that outlines your experience, and your title list. Then, we require all applicants to complete editing tests before moving forward. To keep the process successful, we ask that applicants who lack appropriate experience refrain from testing until they have gained Chicago proficiency.
Are you an expert at separating fact from fiction? We’re always looking for detail-oriented fact-checkers who can verify details in fiction and nonfiction. Please send us your résumé and a brief cover letter that outlines your experience. Make sure to list any publishers or publications you’ve worked with and books you’ve fact-checked, as well as specialty areas.
A well-made index is a reader’s best friend. If you’re an experienced indexer, please send your résumé, a brief cover letter telling us about your experience, and a book list.
