We are seeking an editor for a 43 page (double spaced) manuscript that is geared toward young adult readers. We need an objective editor who ensure clarity, consistency, proper grammar, and pacing and flow of the story. If you have a great grasp of Jewish history that's a plus, but certainly not necessary.

Please let us know if you'd be willing to do this project.

This job will start mid-August.

Thank you.
