As Propriometrics Press continues to grow and we gear up to launch a few new titles (keep up with our website and our Twitter and Instagram profiles for updates!), we are hoping to add a new publisher to our team—someone who can oversee projects, timelines, and big-picture stuff. See below for more information and our requirements!

Propriometrics Press is seeking a publisher for our dynamic and exciting non-fiction micropress. We want someone motivated, with keen marketing and business sense, excellent communication skills, and a lot of vision. This position will take approximately 20-30 hours a week, with flexible hours that accommodate busy periods and lulls. We are located in the Pacific Northwest; local candidates a plus.

Your tasks would include:

  • Managing budgets for backlist promotions, reprints, and new books
  • Liaising with our foreign rights agent, distributor, and printer on all tasks
  • Keeping big-picture schedules on track, including lead time for marketing and promotions
  • Managing our editorial, production, and promotions staff
  • Creating and leading marketing initiatives for front and backlist
  • Helping to plan and organize author events and book tours
  • Bringing new book ideas to the table

You have:

  • At least 5 years’ experience in book publishing, including at least 1 year in a senior management position, as a publisher preferred
  • A thorough and proven skill with book marketing and promotions
  • Contacts at major publications for review
  • A passion for making thought-provoking books that aim to shift our culture into a more sustainable, human-movement-based future
  • An understanding of the Propriometrics backlist and mandate, and a keen eye for next steps

Please submit a cover letter, detailed CV, and a thorough marketing plan you created and implemented for an existing book to Penelope at pj@propriometricspress.com.
