Interactive, informative, intelligent
Writer/Editor (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – April 14, 2016
I worked for Reader's Digest Children's Publishing on a freelance basis for a number of years, writing and rewriting novelty books based on movie, television and toy licenses. Occasionally I wrote generic (original) stories as well based on assignments from the editor and art director. I had an excellent experience working with Reader's Digest. It was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of my career. While the work paid very well, approximately $1,500-$3,000 per book assignment, there's no price tag to be placed on the intellectual stimulation that came from collaborating with editors and art directors. I'll never forget the satisfaction I received from seeing a project through from initial idea to finished product--it was an amazing time in my life.
working with stimulating colleagues
working via phone/email is second best to meeting in a conference room
