Book Works seeks an experienced new editor to work with the publishing team on our programme of artists’ book commissions.
You will assist the Director with the commissioning of new publications and projects, and managing the editorial and production process. You will work on new commissions with artists and writers, on projects that are often experimental, and need close reading, developmental edits, copyediting and proofreading, fact checking, and image permissions. You will work with graphic designers and printers on the production and printing of books. The position requires experience of working on similar or comparable texts or publications, as well as an interest in contemporary art, print culture and artists’ publishing.
Book Works is committed to making a positive impact to address inequality and discrimination. Through our work, employment and audience engagement, we pursue a programme that foregrounds social justice in the arts. Our programme reflects our desire to work with artists and writers from the global majority who are often unrecognised by mainstream institutions, and those from liberation or historically marginalised groups. You will work closely with artists and writers and play a key role in ensuring our principles of equality, diversity and inclusion are foregrounded in our work. You will also work towards new ways of improving our commitment to climate justice.
