    Congratulations on and good luck with this new project! Sometimes, I think that those of us who have experience on both sides of the fence have it easiest. We know how to make editors’ lives easier. We know how to make freelancers happy. This project is perfect for you!

    I’m actually in the running for a part-time assistant editor gig as well, for a web magazine. It would require me to be on-site 25 hours a week, which would be quite the lifestyle change. But the regular income, the community of staffers, and the challenges the job would provide me with were too tempting to ignore. 🙂

    Congratulations! This sounds great – lots of fun, too. I do a lot of freelance editing and love it. I’ve found it’s made me a better writer and helped me understand the voices of others – individuals, clients, etc.
