Talent – Parvus Press

Join Our Talent Team

Are you smart, entrepreneurial, and at least a little nerdy?

It takes a lot more than a good story to bring a book to market. Parvus Press is looking for the best freelancers in the industry to join us in publishing the next generation of great Fantasy and Science Fiction. Read on to learn what positions are open and what makes us different.

Why Parvus?

On-Time Every Time

Our reputation means the world to us and we want every partner, vendor, author, and freelancer who comes in contact with us to walk away feeling respected. That means, at a bare minimum, paying our freelancers fairly and on-time, every time. If you want references, we’re happy to provide them.

The Ultimate Freelance Environment

Do you want to use us as a stepping stone for long-term career goals? Great! Looking for a resume-builder to help you land the next full time gig? Okay by us. Are you trying to build your own business and quit your day job entirely? We’re behind you one hundred percent!

We want to help our freelancers achieve their goals – whatever they may be. We’ll share what knowledge, expertise, and information we have to help you be successful in the long-term.

Quality

We’re serious about what we produce, and we’re committed to assembling the best team of professionals who share our vision of producing great books. From cover to cover, word by word, you can be assured that Parvus Press stands behind our work and we will never ask you to work on a book that we don’t believe in, ourselves.
