I am specialized in technical translations and I don't have too much difficulty finding projects, but I would like to get some literary jobs from time to time, with large delays and no expectation of big bucks whatsoever. The objectives would be to have some fun and work on my style.

The thing is, I have no idea how to get this type of work! Would you have any advice about how to start in this area?

Thanks in advance,

contact publishing houses Dec 12, 2004

You might try contacting publishing houses. Send them a resume and a cover letter, explaining them your wish. If they are interested, they should send you a test - et voilà.

Christmas is coming - you might well earn a suitable present.

Best wishes,
