Freelance Job of the Day

Textbook writers: John Wiley & Sons (, a major college textbook publisher, seeks to hire experienced nonfiction writers to help us develop an exciting new series of undergraduate college and junior-college level texts. Writers will be teamed up with academics. The academics will build detailed outlines around instructional objectives and provide appropriate source materials; the writers will work within a detailed template to flesh out the text. In some cases, we will be able to adapt existing Wiley content. Candidates must have a successful publication record and clear expertise in one or more of the following disciplines: Geography (Human, Physical, World Regional), Geology (Historical, Physical), Business, Psychology (Introductory), Environmental Science, Human Development, Child Development, Anthropology (Introductory, Physical), Weather and Climate, Liberal Arts Chemistry If you would you like to learn more about Wiley's new textbook series, please email your resume and publications list to Laura McKenna ( with a cover letter specifying your areas of expertise and availability. Should you have a website with additional information about yourself and your work, please send the URL for that as well. If there is a match between your experience and a given title, we will send you further information along with a nondisclosure agreement. (We think our idea is so compelling that we need to keep it under wraps as long as possible.) Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
