L.A. Weekly Seeks Freelance Copy Editor
Do you obsess over typos? Does bad grammar make you cringe? Do you find yourself grating your teeth every time we confuse "convince" and "persuade"?
We might be able to help -- and by that, we mean help you help us.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
