American Media is looking for a copy editor/writer with a minimum of three year’s experience at a weekly or daily publication. Our focus is on celebrity news, human interest features and some hard political / crime stories.
This position requires a skilled hand with spelling, style, punctuation, grammar and usage balanced by a respect for the voice of the writer and the publications. There may be occasional rewrites, but this position will not be asked to write headlines. We are looking for a flyspecking word specialist with a sharp red pencil and a good sense of humor who will play a key role in our very collegial newsroom.
Some proficiency in Adobe InDesign is essential, but page design experience is not necessary.
This is a Monday-Friday position in lower Manhattan. Hours vary with the publication schedules, but it is essentially a daytime shift. Salary is competitive and will depend on the applicant's level of experience.
If interested, please send a cover letter and resume when responding to this job post.
