Rebellion Publishing is looking for a new Commissioning Editor to work on its international, multiple award-winning SF and Fantasy fiction imprints Solaris and Abaddon Books. We are seeking a candidate with proven experience of fiction editing and an enthusiasm for genre who can also demonstrate a vision of how to build and grow our best-selling and award-laden lists on both sides of the Atlantic alongside our core publishing team and fellow commissioning editor. This is a very exciting opportunity for the right candidate to help us develop and grow our bestselling list of books.
This role does not involve comics commissioning responsibilities for the Rebellion sister imprints 2000 AD and Treasury of British Comics, however the successful candidate will work alongside and coordinate with the comics team.
Experience of submissions-reading, commissioning, structural and copy-editing is required. A very thorough understanding of the editorial process and knowledge of book publishing is essential.
