Description:

FC&A Publishing is looking for skilled, experienced writers who know how to turn complicated medical and financial information into fun-to-read, easily understood stories for self-help books sold via Direct Mail.
As an FC&A writer you will work in our Peachtree City, GA office, 25 miles south of the Atlanta airport, and be part of an in-house team of writers and editors. (We are unable to accept applications from writers who want to remain freelancers or remotely located.) Applicants must be willing to work a 40-hour week, Monday-Friday, and enjoy a research-oriented, quiet, wholesome environment.
We are a family-owned business, founded in 1969, with a strong history of success. We offer good pay and benefits including health insurance, a 401k plan, and profit sharing.
Main duties and responsibilities
    •    Develop, outline, research, and write chapters for future books — consulting with our editors throughout the process. Adhere to AP style.
    •    Craft engaging headlines and story leads.
    •    Conduct occasional interviews with medical researchers and leading health and finance experts.
    •    Learn and use our Content Management System for all assignments, following guidelines for citing sources and documenting your work.
    •    Propose graphics and illustrations to accompany stories, as needed.
    •    Meet project deadlines and production goals.
Qualifications
    •    Bachelor’s degree in journalism or related field. Professional writing experience is preferred.
    •    Match FC&A’s friendly, conversational writing style (8th-grade reading level).
    •    Strong research and analytical skills.
    •    Ability to quickly comprehend the finer points of complex topics.
Candidates will be asked to take our standard pre-employment tests and a 2-hour writing test. If you don’t live in the south-Atlanta area, please indicate in your cover letter if you are planning on relocating.
How to contact us:
Send or deliver your resume and writing sample to FC&A Publishing at writer@fca.com. Please select a writing sample that demonstrates your ability to write a story similar to the content and style of a popular magazine’s feature story. You may submit an unpublished story or article. (Please do not send a thesis, presentation, poem, play, or academic assignment. These samples are unrelated to our writing needs and are not helpful.)
