Call for Copyediting Pool, Ethnomusicology Forum

As part of Ethnomusicology Forum’s ongoing commitment to bringing underrepresented and marginalised voiced into the pages of the journal, the Co-editors are seeking nominations for a small pool of copyeditors who are willing to assist with the copyediting of innovative pieces of research being readied for publication. With funds from the British Forum for Ethnomusicology, these copyeditors will be remunerated at one of two rates: for pieces requiring a ‘standard’ copyedit, we will pay at the rate of £4.80 per 300 words; for pieces requiring a ‘complex’ copyedit, we will pay at the rate of £6.90 per 300 words. We will assign entire manuscripts, which normally range from 8,000 to 10,000 words. Once a copyeditor has agreed to work on the manuscript, we expect the piece to be returned to the Co-editors in three weeks.

To apply, please submit a short cover letter detailing your previous copyediting experience, a two-page CV, and a writing sample of 2000 words. This can be either 2000 words of your own writing or a sample that in some way demonstrates your practice as an editor. Applications should be sent by 1st November 2021 to Alexander Cannon at A.M.Cannonatbham.ac.uk. Please also feel free to send any questions to this email address.
