The Lighthouse Literary Consultancy: Freelance Children's Editors
The Lighthouse is a specialist literary consultancy for writers
of children's and Young Adult fiction. We are now seeking to expand
our pool of freelance editors.
We take on projects from picture books through to YA, and we
offer structural/developmental feedback, advice on synopses and
query letters, and the odd copy-edit or proofread. In the last year
we've helped clients transform their novels and sign with agencies
such as The Greenhouse, Curtis Brown (leading to a deal with
Hachette) and RCW (leading to a deal with Macmillan).
Most of our editors are also published authors, but this isn't a
prerequisite. We are cheerful to work with and we pay our
freelancers on time!
If you have children's editorial experience at a national
publishing house, we would love to hear from you. Please send your
CV with a cover note to Sarah Stewart at email@example.com
