Contact Information for Freelancers

Help is just a phone call away

If you would like to offer your freelance services in copyediting, proofreading, or indexing, please send a cover letter and a resume to the Editorial staff at the Boston address. Please note that we require a minimum of five years editorial experience for consideration.

The majority of our design and production is executed in house, and most of the work we send out of house goes to people who are familiar with our design standards. Designers who would like to be considered for freelance work should send a cover letter and resume with a sample (non-returnable) of their work to our Production Department.
