I’ll be honest, I’ve been on the academic job market for a while now. As Paul Ruffin’s assistant, then “acting” director of Texas Review Press since his death, I have known for a couple of years that I needed to be looking for a new job. What I’ve found is that there are not a lot of job openings in publishing for people with my experience.
I have had the very good fortune of connecting with a group of editors I know and respect, and I have signed on with them at Goliad Review & Press as Production Manager.
Still, that doesn’t satisfy all the requests I have from writers and editors. These are two groups of people I have come to know, and they sometimes overlap. The writers want help getting their work to press, and the editors want work to edit. So, I’m starting a small publishing business that will publish a few titles per year as well as offering a variety of author services. I’m excited about the launch of Madville Publishing, and I hope you will take a look at all we have to offer there.
