Full Time

We are looking for a particularly smart, responsible and organized assistant to join our growing team.

This person will lend a hand in writing copy, checking manuscript changes, proofing materials and other editorial duties as needed. Must be proficient in Word and Excel. Must be extremely organized and able to wear many hats. Editorial and/or assistant experience should be noted, but will not be considered a competitive advantage to be fair to candidates who have not had the access or financial privilege to take on this form of work. We strongly encourage BIPOC and other self-identifying members of groups underrepresented in publishing to apply.

The salary is $33,000 annually, with yearly reviews. Benefits include 80% of healthcare policy coverage, a healthy personal time off policy, Summer Fridays, and a work-from-home environment. Candidates may need to work in our offices in Salem from time to time, so applicants in the Northeast are encouraged to apply.

Page Street Publishing Co. publishes around one hundred forty original titles a year and is distributed by Macmillan everywhere except Canada, where Manda does the sales and PGC handles the distribution. Each year we try to help local environmental causes, and last year we donated nearly 10% of our profits to the Trustees of the Reservation and Greenbelt. We use only sustainable paper vendors and print with environmentally-friendly, soy-based ink. Page Street Publishing Co. was founded in 2012 and is located just outside of Boston.
