Wanted - a new Director/ Commissioning Editor for Windhorse Publications


Windhorse Publications is moving to Cambridge at the end of the year. We need a new director to take the business forward including developing new publishing both for the movement and the general public.

The Director/ Commissioning Editor will be responsible for providing a strategic overview; liaising with the trustees, including preparing papers and reports; managing the team, including outsourced work; keeping a financial overview; creating an editorial strategy in conjunction with the editorial board and Council; commissioning authors to write, including help with structuring their books and writing style; and stock control. As usual with such a small team, there will be a need to be flexible and help with other tasks as necessary.

The trustees are looking for someone with a good business sense, who works well with others, and is capable of producing books which serve the needs of people in the FWBO and beyond. It would be desirable to have some publishing experience, but not essential, as two of us trustees have plenty of experience and can give training and support.

Please send your application to Sagaraghosa by 25 October. It would help if you could register interest by 17 October. Those who have already applied need not apply again.
