The media industry and the book-publishing world are undergoing rapid changes in the digital age, resulting not only in the shrinking or death of older publications and companies but also in the birth of many startups and new opportunities for self-publishing with the rise in print-on-demand and e-books. Many authors, entrepreneurs, and media owners do not know where to look for talent; and more media outlets are using freelance talent because of the high cost of full-time staffing, staff cuts, recession, etc. At the same time, different skill sets are needed as technology and industry change. Many providers — managers, writers, reporters, editors, photographers, graphic designers, picture editors, fact checkers, researchers and proofreaders — are out of work because of staffing cuts and the closing of many media outlets. Others are seeking new opportunities. Even those who have jobs are often looking for a second source of income because of salary cuts and uncertainties in the marketplace. Editorsoncall wants to “recycle” this highly skilled pool of talent, sweeping up the diamonds to “repurpose” them in new media, cutting-edge ventures and the vastly expanding world of self-publishing.

Who We Are
Veteran editors, writers and consultants with decades of experience in producing articles or images, editing or designing publications, managing staffs, and generating creative ideas in fast-paced professional environments, as well as teaching and lecturing in our fields.
What We Do
Editorsoncall matches clients’ need for editorial assistance to the solution. We can provide an individual writer, photographer or other professional for a one-time assignment or a team of editors, writers, photographers and designers for a long-term project or to meet ongoing needs. We can work on one article or a book, produce publications or websites, create editorial concepts and develop content for your startup or manage large-scale projects (websites, magazines, books, series) from beginning to end.
We connect people with talents to people who need their services. However, Editorsoncall is less like an “Internet dating service” and more like a marriage broker. Unlike some popular find-a-freelancer websites that merely use a website platform or advertisements to allow the talent and the clients to find each other, we create relationships. Then, we follow through on the project, monitor progress and check the finished product so clients can be assured a quality product. Depending on the needs of the client, we can make recommendations or assign writers, edit the work, hire photographers, find someone to design it and arrange for final publication.
Editorsoncall offers direct, personal service to fit the talent to the assignment, EOC vets the backgrounds of providers, negotiates fees, supervises the work when needed, brokers any glitches in the relationships that arise and administer payments. Editorsoncall offers more professional, editorial guidance for the client than Internet services do, drawing on its knowledge of the providers.

We need you, and our clients need you, but you also need us.
