CityBeat has an immediate opening for a full-time Associate Editor. We’re looking for a web-savvy individual who enjoys managing large-scale listings projects almost as much as copy editing the weekly issue. The role involves a heavy emphasis on copy editing and fact-checking but also includes web publishing, social media scheduling and listings management. You will also need to be a pretty great writer who pitches articles big and small, from weekly event previews to cover stories and quirky pieces for special issues. And it goes without saying that an intimate familiarity with Cincinnati and CityBeat’s style and tone are critical.
Ideal candidates will have previous writing and editorial experience — student newspapers count — along with strong and effective organization and communication skills and great attention to detail. Candidates must be able to operate under pressure, meet deadlines and work flexibly on multiple projects. Familiarity with InDesign, Word, Excel and content management systems is also important
If this sounds like something you’d be into, submit a cover letter and resume with a link to your portfolio and/or three writing samples to Editor in Chief Danny Cross ([email protected]). Be specific about your editing and project management experience and pitch us three story ideas across any of our weekly sections or regularly appearing special sections.
