Editor/Writer Needed at Psychotherapy.net

posted 1/31/18

Psychotherapy.net is in need of a part-time editor (approx 10-20 hours per week; can work remotely) to help our team with the following:
  • Review submissions of articles, interviews, and blogs, and respond to authors. Accept or reject submissions (in consultation with CEO), and edit articles that need work to get them up to our publication standards. This often involves a few rounds of back and forth with authors.
  • Review videos and write descriptions for website, as well as oversee other writers for this task.
  • Recruit new writers and bloggers.
  • Write Instructor Manuals for our psychotherapy training videos
  • Other writing/editing tasks as needed. You must be able to write and edit in a lively, non-academic style, as well as write web copy in a marketing-savvy way, but also non-cheesy way. You may be required to write CE test questions. You may be able to help with our video productions. We do not publish anything in APA style. Please review our website to get an idea of what we strive for.
  • You must be responsible, pleasant, very organized, and score 80 or higher on the Humor-at-Work™ Test.
Oh, by the way, you must be a psychotherapist with at least five years of clinical experience. And you need to have some demonstrable editing and non-academic writing experience. If you have experience with sales or marketing oriented writing, that’s a big plus.

If you are interested, and want us to consider you for this position, you MUST send the following to submissions@psychotherapy.net (if you don’t include this info, we won’t respond to your inquiry)
  • Brief statement of why you are interested and qualified for this position. What specific and relevant editing and writing experience do you have?
  • Any impressions of the content on our website: What do you like, and why? What might you want to add to our site? What, if anything, you think can be improved?
  • Resume or CV
  • 1 or more writing samples (preferably non-APA style)
  • Hourly salary requirements
Please note that if we are deluged with responses, we will only be able to respond to folks that we think may be a good fit. Thanks for your understanding!
