Do you have a strong opinion about the Oxford comma? Is proper capitalization important to you? Do you love free minds and free markets? Come copyedit Reason!
Reason magazine and Reason.com are seeking a dedicated copyeditor/proofreader. We are not looking for an aspiring journalist with a willingness to copyedit, but rather someone who will enjoy cleaning up copy, writing headlines, and working with authors as their primary responsibilities.
Ideal candidates will excel at editing for content, flow, and Reason style. They should also have familiarity with Reason’s archive and experience working with online CMS, selecting images, and related tasks. Quick turnaround will be expected. Comfort working directly with staff and freelance authors a must.
Job location is negotiable; DC or LA are preferred. Candidates at all levels of experience are invited to apply. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Please send a cover letter and resume, and three professional references – all as a single word or pdf file – to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your cover letter should include a description of why you are interested in working for Reason, how your past experience is relevant to a role here, and a description of any relevant technical skills. Please also specify your desired job location and ability to relocate.
