Web Editor at Publications International, Ltd.

In 2007, I worked as a freelance editor for Publications International, Ltd. (PIL – The rocker in me loves this acronymn). PIL is a unique publisher in that they sign agreements with their freelancers so that PIL maintains ownership of content, which was atypical in publication for a long time.

Because PIL owned all the nonfiction content created for them over the years, they were able to broker a deal with HowStuffWorks.com, providing the website with billions of pages of relevant content for their “how to” search engine. (Including the picture that I chose to illustrate this blog post, btw).

As a freelance editor, It was my job to fit existing content into the HowStuffWorks.com format. I formatted articles relating to Arts and Crafts, Gardening and Travel.
