  1. Just a question: Staff position. Hours a week? Online? Compensation? I may be interested. 30+ years education and career as writer/editor, publishing, design. I’m so interested in cleaning up the manuscripts on the market today. A crusade of mine, but I’m an author foremost. Reply if you might be interested in me, and I’ll submit all the material, above.

  2. I would be interested in doing some work for your publication, beyond the reviews I’ve done and will be doing. I have a PhD in English (literature) and would love to help out.

    I can send my CV if you would like.
