Are you a planner? Do you believe in to-do lists? Do your friends joke about your organized, meticulous ways?

Do you know when to use "which" and when to use "that"?

Enjoy a good debate about the serial comma? Cringe when you see an out-of-place apostrophe?

Would you enjoy working in a laid-back atmosphere but sweating the details—and the deadlines?

We’re looking for a production assistant and copyeditor—a single person who embodies all the qualities above. The position is great for people who are interested in both the technical and the editorial aspects of book publishing.

Here’s some more information about production and copyediting at Jones McClure:

Production. Jones McClure publishes two dozen books each year. Our production staff is responsible for guiding each book through the publication process—tracking the many steps as they happen and ensuring that the book is sent to press on time. We use an XML-editing program and custom-built tools to incorporate editorial changes into our documents. We also prepare materials for, and assist with, a variety of editorial processes, including proofreading and other quality-control checks.

Copyediting. Our company is dedicated to publishing plain-English, easy-to-understand law books for practicing attorneys. Our copyediting group works to make sure our writing is clear and error-free. We edit for mechanics (spelling, punctuation, house style), language (grammar, usage), and content (clarity, consistency).
