Remote in the United States, or Washington, D.C.
Stateline, the daily journalism project of The Pew Charitable Trusts, seeks someone to fill the temporary role of copy editor for about four months beginning in late July. We cover news and trends in state policy and legislation, and our work is frequently republished in regional and national news outlets such as McClatchy, the Washington Post and USA Today.
This person will copy edit our lead daily story, which usually runs about 1,500-2,000 words (we employ a separate fact checker), and will be a key liaison with the production staff. You'll also be asked to send out a daily newsletter and help shepherd occasional graphics requests. We expect this role to be about 30 hours a week. The hours are somewhat flexible, but will be between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time on weekdays. Remote is fine, though you're welcome in our Washington, D.C., office. Pay is estimated at $40/hour.
We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds. You should have three years of journalism experience, ideally at a daily news outlet, with an excellent command of AP style and a collaborative approach to editing. Please send a resume and cover letter to Managing Editor Barb Barrett, firstname.lastname@example.org.
