Copy Editor/Designer

WEHCO MEDIA   Little Rock, AR   Full-time     Writing / Editing
Posted on May 2, 2023

We are doing some exciting, cutting-edge work at the Arkansas
Democrat-Gazette, and we are committed to giving our readers balanced,
objective coverage of the day's news. The copy desk and design desk are
vital parts of our daily effort to continue traditional journalism in a
nontraditional way.

That's especially true during the pandemic, which has most of us working
from home. We are accepting applications for a copy editor/page designer on
our night news copy desk in Little Rock. To be considered, an applicant
should have a college degree in journalism and relevant experience. The
journalist we're seeking knows grammar and AP style, and can write accurate,
attention-grabbing headlines.

Each applicant brought in for an interview should expect to take a
copy-editing test. Experience using Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and
Photoshop is a plus. The person hired for this position will be expected to
design news pages either immediately or soon after hiring.

Drug-free. EOE.
