What skill sets are we seeking?
With everyone who joins our team, except for cover artists, we seek publishing professionals who own more than one skill set. For example, can you layout a print book in InDesign and also copy-edit that book? Can you do ebook conversions/coding and also are proficient at editing? Or possibly you can build WordPress websites and also are a professional editor. Or maybe you can do all of the above. We are all professional writers and editors, but we all also bring at least one additional professional level skill.
