The L.A. Weekly has a rare opening for a freelance copy editor. We're looking for someone who can serve as a backup for our full-time crew -- assisting by proofreading the issue on the occasional weekend and filling in at the office some weekdays as we put the print issue to bed.
Knowledge of AP style is a must (and yes, there will be a test). Because there is some training involved, the ideal candidate is someone who's looking for flexible work going forward -- not filling a gap between full-time positions.
If that doesn't scare you, please send a cover letter and résumé to email@example.com.
