The Sun Seeks Manuscript Readers

Didn't want to wait until the next "Markets/Jobs/Opportunities" round-up to post this! One of my favorite magazines, The Sun, is looking for freelance manuscript readers. "This is an ideal job for someone who loves to read and can provide insightful written evaluations of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry." You must be able to work 10-20 hours/week at home and make "at least a two-year commitment." The Sun is based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and you must be local to apply. (NB: The Sun is also looking for a full-time circulation assistant. Find information on both positions and application instructions here.)

Erika,

Thanks so much for posting this. I have sent in my application. (Their office is just a 25-minute drive from my home.) The Sun is the only literary magazine to which I subscribe.

The way I see it, if I can't get my work accepted fo publication in their magazine, perhaps I can get them to pay me for being a reader!
