Below, an opportunity to work with local author Pagan Kennedy in helping promote her latest book -- a piece of non-fiction about the first person to get a male-to-female sex change. I interviewed Pagan about her most recent novel, Confessions of a Memory Eater, and can easily say that this would be an extremely cool gig.
Author Seeks AssitantWant to learn to how to make a living as an author and journalist? Want to improve your writing under the mentorship of an experienced author? Don't want to be paid a lot? Right now I need help promoting my ninth book, which is a biography related to the sciences and gender issues. The book will be released by a major publisher in March. You will be in charge of the internet promotion of the book; you may also end up helping me research articles for magazines. You will need a laptop equipped with an airport card so you can work at my house for about 10 hours a week. This is an internship rather than a job, but I can pay a small monthly stipend. I will also help you to move your own career forward by giving you amazingly useful tips about how to pitch your ideas to magazines, how to shape your concepts into publishable stories, and/or how to edit your novel so that it captures the fancy of editors.
