We may see some editors moving up or saying, “Goodbye” at Random House, since they are offering an Early Retirement Option
Random House announced internally today that they are “briefly making available a voluntary early retirement program as an option for eligible US-based staff interested in making a major transition in their personal and professional lives, and in response to our employees’ interests and long-term goals.” The program is open to employees 50 and over who have at least five years of continuous service, and is valid through April 14, for implementation some time before the end of this year.
Sally Kim will join Touchstone as editorial director, reporting to publisher Stacy Creamer. She was executive editor at Harper, and specializes in “quality fiction with commercial appeal, which fits perfectly with our Touchstone mission.”

Know any editor who has moved to another publishing house or a new agency opening up?  We’d love to hear from you.

Talk tomorrow,
