Working with us

Careers

If we have any vacancies, we’ll post those here. Unfortunately, we’re not recruiting at present.

Freelancers

We work with numerous freelancers for various stages of the book production process for both our Impress Books list and our Aelurus Publishing imprint. If you would us to keep your details on file, please contact us at contact@impress-books.co.uk. If you have standard rates, please indicate these to us.

For editors

If you are an experienced developmental/structural editor please include the genres you work with and examples of published titles you have worked on. We regret that we don’t work with inexperienced developmental editors.

For copyediting/line-editing, we’re happy to consider you if: 1) you have extensive experience copy editing and can provide us with a suitable portfolio, or 2) you have a professional copy editing qualification and some experience.

For cover designers and illustrators

Please provide us with a link to your website/portfolio. Our process for cover designs includes collaborative video meetings with us and (usually) the author to discuss ideas and concepts and you must be willing to engage with us in this way.

Interns

We work with many interns, most of whom work remotely. The majority of our internships are volunteer positions working for around 5 hours a week. These are often ideal for undergraduate or post-graduate students looking to learn more about the publishing industry; however, we would particularly love to work with people from marginalised back-grounds, as per our Social Purpose.
