In today’s age of instant communication, projects can be managed from anywhere in the world. I manage projects for publishers in Toronto, with authors located across Canada and production teams situated around the globe.
I create and monitor schedules, and report status updates to the managing editor and other in-house staff. I also provide initial instruction and ongoing guidance to authors and freelance editors, as required.
In addition to communicating with the project team, I review draft and final manuscript for conformity to the product profile, and page proofs for conformity to design specs. I compile in-house and external reviews and communicate feedback, as necessary, to authors and editors.
