She Reads Truth is looking to add a part-time copy editor to our team. We’re looking for a highly-skilled, detailed-obsessed, professional copy editor with experience working independently. This editor loves the Oxford comma, knows the difference between an en-dash and an em-dash, and can bring precision and care to everything they review. This position is for an experienced copy editor who loves editing, not a writer who is willing to edit.
This role will be responsible for editing original copy for She Reads Truth, He Reads Truth, and Kids Read Truth, including printed products, online devotionals, marketing emails, social captions, and design assets. The copy editor is a new position for our company, so the ideal candidate will be comfortable working with us to establish rhythms and flows for this role.
