The Seattle Times

Multiplatform Copy Editor (On-Call)
The Seattle Times, a family-owned news organization and one of the nation’s few remaining independent daily metro news organizations, is seeking experienced Copy Desk Editors to fill occasional editing shifts at will, on an on-call basis. Starting times for our eight-hour shifts can range from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the frequency of work opportunities can range from one shift a month to as many as three in one week as we cover desk editors’ leaves and vacations. As part of our team, you will ensure newsworthy content moves rapidly from initial draft to final product with accuracy, sense, fairness, grammar and style. You should be comfortable working under tight deadlines with ease while supporting multiple editors at once. Ideally, you have previous experience (and mastery) with both AP style and knowledge of local geography and nomenclature.
