Screeners Needed

Happy Sunday, everybody.

LPI is looking for a very small number of submission screeners. This is a volunteer position only. No wages or royalties are paid.

Requirements:

You must really, really love to read, because you’ll be reading a lot.

You must have Microsoft Word, Open Office and a gmail account.

You must have at least 2-4 hours free each week to read.

You must be 18 years of age or older. (LPI receives all types of submissions, including erotica, and we can’t discriminate in the screening process)

You must not already be employed or contracted by LPI or another publishing company of any sort. (No, line editors, you do not get to screen subs, too, sorry. Fresh eyes really do mean fresh eyes).

You must not be engaged as a screener for any other publisher.

You must be prepared and able to give concise, constructive feedback on subs. This does not mean you need to be a grammar/story excerpt. It means you must be able to explain what you liked, why you liked it, what you didn’t like and why you didn’t like it, what you found difficult to read through, etc.

You must be prepared to be delighted by subs, but also remember publishing is a business.

You must abide by the first rule of sub club: Don’t talk about sub club. If you screen for us, you must never share information about subs, authors or procedures with any one else for any reason. (We’re evaluating ppl’s dreams, here. Have some respect.)

Why to apply:

Because you like to read.

Because you love to say yes but understand why and when to say no.

Why we’re opening this to the public:

Because we know editors’ opinions aren’t the same as readers’ opinions.

How to apply:

Please fill out this Google Form.

***Permission to forward granted.***

  1. If you still need help, give me a holler. I can probably spare a couple hours a week.
