I’m pleased to announce the release of the third edition of Writing College Textbook Supplements: Developing Test Questions, Quiz Questions, Instructor Manuals, Lecture Outlines, and Other Curriculum Components.
Most long-time readers know that this has been my main freelance writing niche for over two decades. This expanded and completely up-to-date edition details everything a freelance writer interested in the field needs to know.
Why a Third Edition?
Simple. Even though I’ve been deeply involved in this niche for over 25 years, I’ve learned even more since the second edition came out in 2011, plus I’ve found more resources to help writers like you win more assignments.
So What’s New?
Plenty. The book expanded to 146 8.5 x 11 pages and over 37,000 words because I added a lot important of material:
- The increasing role of education content management companies and how to get hired by them
- More detail on how to find jobs on the Internet
- Using LinkedIn to connect with editors and project managers
- Working for other companies and nonprofits besides college textbook publishing companies and education content management companies
- The pros and cons of having your own website, and what to include if you do decide to have your own website
- More information on how to please editors and increase the likelihood you’ll be hired again
- More tips on how to get the actual work done well and quickly
- More details on writing the best test and quiz questions
- More Internet resources, including education writing job sites, along with updated URLs
- More ways to work in curriculum development as a subject matter expert
