You may have noticed a dearth of book reviews on the AASECT website over the past few months. This is because your editorial team is on the hunt for a new Book Review Coordinator... someone who can play matchmaker between the new industry-specific titles appearing in the marketplace and their perfect reviewers.
The responsibilities of the Book Review Coordinator are to:
- get themselves placed on the publicity mailing lists at all of the relevant publishing houses
- peruse the latest catalogs from publishers, pinpointing the titles that may be most interesting / relevant to our members and requesting review copies
- seek out subject matter professionals willing to review these books for Contemporary Sexuality, perhaps even building up a roster of regular reviewers
- coordinate the production of these reviews, eventually passing these reviews along to Steph Auteri, Senior Writer, for final edits and inclusion in Contemporary Sexuality
If you're interested in being the next Book Review Coordinator, please email me.
This is a volunteer position.
You can also email me if you are interested in being a reviewer, or if you have a book that you would like reviewed.
