Copy Editor

Tucson, AZ, USA Req #16320
Thursday, September 15, 2022

If you’re the type of person who carries a Sharpie to correct spelling and grammar on menus and advertising posters, you’re the type of person who would thrive as a copy editor at the Arizona Daily Star.

Our copy editors are the last set of eyes on news stories and we depend on them to edit stories, photos, graphics and other elements for accuracy, clarity, relevance, fairness, structure, style, good taste and privacy issues. Because our copy editors work closely with remote designers, they must be extremely detail oriented and be comfortable listing every element that will run on a particular page. We look for people who are comfortable making decisions but know when to ask questions.

While we want copy editors to live in Tucson so they understand the community and know how to spell the street names, you’d have a choice of working in a newsroom or from home.
