EFA’s members are professionals with years of experience and a broad array of skills. We will post jobs from every area of the publishing and communications industries, but only if you are paying the industry average or above. We will post staff jobs and jobs from placement agencies. We are happy to list jobs from unpublished and new authors – but please read our guidelines first.
We do not post low-paying or nonpaying jobs or internships of any sort. See the schedule of common rates to get a sense of fair market prices for editing, indexing, design, translating, research, and writing. If you would like the freelancer to take an editing test, please see our suggested testing guidelines here.
