I just joined a marketing department for a public library and I have been asked to investigate a better way to handle the editorial calendar. Right now we use a color coded spreadsheet with a tab for ever six months. It was created inhouse. It works but we looking for suggestions for something more efficient.

I make mistakes. Does that mean I’m not cut out to be a proofreader?

I am very dissatisfied with my career trajectory (it may be laughable to even call it that) and I’m wondering if it is because I am doing something that I really have no aptitude for. Is there really such a thing as an "error-free" proofreader? [more inside]

Who are all these editors?

Need To Find A Freelance Editor

I need an editor (copy and content) for an edgy, non-traditional chapbook of poems. Word count is light -- around 4,000. Budget is nearly non-existent (this is an art project) but there would be some kind of honorarium attached. Can someone help me find a good, trusty editor?

Looking for the Tonight Show in Heaven cartoon

Please help me find this editorial cartoon! It was published right after Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson died last year. The cartoon shows Johnny Carson at his desk and Ed McMahon sitting next to him in heaven, and Ed's telling Johnny that they're going to have a great show that night, since he brought Farrah Fawcett with him and Michael Jackson will be performing. (I'm paraphrasing) I can't remember the cartoonist or the paper - I saw it on a weekly cartoon roundup site originally, and my Google-fu is utterly failing.

How do I get (free) press coverage for my boss' pet issue?

What's the best way to get some buzz going on a web article my boss asked me to write? The higher ups want to get an established columnist/journalist in the US to publish it, or comment on it. I've posted the article on our corporate site (if you must know, it's a defense of outsourcing) - so what's a guy gotta do to get some column-inches for a pet issue in an actual newspaper?

Please, be my librarian

Mark Leyner wrote a puff piece about the Women of CNN (or HNN) in the early/mid 90's. It ends with a really great thing about the world ending while he is soothed by their explaining it to him. I can't find it online. Anyone know this piece and what publication it ran in (and when)? Or--this would be swell--seen it reproduced somewhere online?

In the future, will we all be incarcerated?

Sometime, say within the last 4 years, I read an editorial which answered the question of what accepted practice of our society would be viewed by future generations as morally reprehensible. The editorializer (who I believe was a person of some note) proposed incarceration as punishment for crime as an answer. Does anybody know who this was or where it appeared? [more inside]
