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. 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 401(k) 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.

• 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 4-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.
