    Re: Editor/Writer position

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I am currently living in Kerala, South India, having taken some time off to work on a book project of my own; a fictional account of an event in Canadian Native Indian history. My last full-time position was that of Supervising Editor of Research and Development at Korea PolySchool (KPS) in Seoul, South Korea, where I was responsible for an editorial staff of four and a compliment of six to ten writers, depending on the size and scope of the project(s). We produced weekly on-line tests for ESL students, in addition to textbooks, workbooks, and teacher’s guides. We developed manuals and style guides for editors and writers, as well as workshops for Research and Development staff. That contract ended in May of this year.
    Over the past fifteen years, I have worked as a writer, editor and teacher in different capacities. As a Writer Broadcaster for CBC Radio, I researched and wrote current affairs stories for live broadcast. In Kaohsuing, Taiwan, I worked for the city government to develop and conduct seminars for civil servants on a variety of subjects relating to the World Games, which has been awarded to that city for 2009. These included Writing For an American Business Audience, The United Nations, The History and Nature of the World Games, and several other subjects relative to international diplomacy. I performed the first edit of “Breaking the Silence,” a book produced by the Assembly of First Nations of Canada, which documents the plight of Native communities under the Canadian residential school system. These jobs, among others in print and film, have demanded the ability to adapt quickly to new subject matter, writing styles, editorial standards and teaching methodologies.
    I appreciate the opportunity to apply for this position, and look forward to further correspondence.
