Former editor/reporter (now retired) seeks part-time work involving reporting,editing, or proofreading(or combination thereof) for your fine publication. I have extensive experience covering city council, school boards, sports of all types, county board, and/or any type of hard news. I can also write features on any subject. I would work from home via my cell phone, internet and computer and I've had many years of experience doing my job this way. I would be an independent contractor and I would be very flexible. I would be able to work nights and weekends since some contacts wouldn't be available during day-time hours.
Advertising sales: I also have extensive experience in advertising sales for newspapers, shoppers, TMC products, and websites. I actually enjoy a combination of writing and sales.
Full-time possible: My wife also has experience in sales and writing. If you wanted the equivalent of full-time (remote) we could become a full-time team for you.
The Best Movie of all time was His Girl Friday, a great comedy about the newspaper business. And the best business of all time (in my prejudiced view) is the newspaper business.
