Editors

Even Stephen King has an editor. Whether your genre is literary or main-stream fiction, nonfiction, essays, children's books, or how to, a professional line-by-line review is necessary before publication or agent hunting.

From day one, it's been Pressque's goal to find and secure work for a select team of professional editors. Most of our editors have studied English and creative writing, and our senior editors all have masters in English, MFAs, or are currently working to attain one. We've also had a fair amount of fortune when tapping the field of professional journalism (as long as the editor/writer can gracefully make the switch from AP style to The Chicago Manual of Style).

We expect a lot from our editors and writers. We expect them to meet deadlines. We expect them to be hardnosed and unerring. More than anything, we like to see a sense of boldness. Editing is always a source of failure, but each and every day, manuscript after manuscript, we strive for excellence.

Authors and books we've worked with have been SIBA finalists as well as IPPY Gold and Silver Medal Award winners in mystery/suspense, true crime, and children's picture book. We've worked with bestselling authors. Back in the day (when Oprah had a talk show not an entire network), three of our authors appeared on "Oprah," several others have secured numerous appearances over the years on NPR, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, and in The Harvard Review, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Newsweek, one worked with Martin Luther King, Jr., and still another has changed how builders and contractors all over the country get LEED certified.
