CreateSpace Closing Author Services Division

Amazon announced it was laying off 58 of its employees in South Carolina. This employee group was responsible for covering interior design as well as editorial and marketing services. In 2018 CreateSpace plans to get out of the author services side of the business altogether.

“After a thorough review of our service offerings, we’ve made the decision to discontinue Createspace’s paid professional editing, design and marketing services,” Amazon said in a statement. “We will work closely with impacted employees through this transition to help them find new roles within the company or assist them with pursuing opportunities outside the company.”
