In preparing for the novels and site upgrades that we are planning, I want to start a rigorous hiring process for new editors and proofreaders for new novels that we are planning on translating.
I want to make it clear that I won’t be hiring for PMG and anyone who is approved for either of these positions will only have access to ‘their’ novel. The benefits to these positions will include receiving chapters ahead of time. Although proofreaders are not paid, editors will be paid, varying amounts depending on the novel that they are hired for.
Please only apply to these positions if you are serious about committing yourself. If you fall behind or are anything less than consistent with your work, every reader will suffer the consequences, up to and including the loss of the novel. I’m also requesting that whoever applies can tolerate certain levels of negative feedback. Although our site has a zero-tolerance for such things, they can occasionally slip through the cracks. It’s important to remember that PMG was once very popular, but due to a month or two of sickness, negative comments (including death threats) pushed our original translator away from translating. In that, without consistent editing and scheduling of chapters, it’s easy to believe that PMG would not be where it is today.
If all of this sounds like your cup of tea, please email me at “[email protected]” with the subject heading: Editor or Proofreader. If you are applying for either, just put “Editor” for now.
Any spamming to this email will remove any chances of applying. Do not email any complaints or questions you have about PMG to this email. This will be a preemptive employment of staff, so I can’t divulge which novels we are adding, and you may not start working for some time. Please do email me with any questions you have.
Please do include any of your current time restrictions (ex: school, XX amount of work hours, X amount of extra-curricular activities), the amount of time you can guarantee that you can put aside for your desired position, and if English is your first language. If you are applying as an editor, include any previous experience you have involving writing/editing (with some kind of proof, as anybody can just make up information that they have experience). GOOD LUCK!
