wikiHow Full-Time Editing Fellowship - writing / editing / translation - job employment

City: Denver
Date: 13 Mar 2019
Category: Writing / Editing

wikiHow is seeking talented, ambitious, college-educated writers to help us further our mission of teaching anyone in the world how to do anything. As a remote full-time Editing Fellow for wikiHow, you will enhance, edit, and create solid material that teaches readers how to do anything -- from how to bake a classic apple pie to how to make friends in middle school (and everything in between). Please note that you will be asked to conceptualize, write, and revise content - this is not a copyediting position.

If you're passionate about helping people and a motivated self-starter, this might be the position for you! This remote position is for a full-time 40-hour work week during regular business hours. The position includes basic benefits, and though the work is remote, we will always support your writing with thoughtful review and individual help if you need it.

What you'll do:
- Write engaging content in a fast-paced and supportive environment
- Research articles to provide the best information for our hundreds of thousands of readers
- Work on a variety of topics
- Help readers by writing in a conversational, friendly tone that shows empathy for their problems
- Participate in other content-related tasks as needed

What you'll bring:
- College degree, preferably in English, Creative Writing, or another writing-intensive field
- Experience researching, writing, editing, evaluating, and organizing content
- Ability to write in a clear, engaging, and friendly tone across a variety of topics
- Motivation and drive to work independently
- Commitment to both the big picture and routine parts of completing a project
- Eagerness for constructive feedback
- Dedication to providing the highest quality work

Note: This is a 40 hour per week, two-year fellowship, which in some cases can be extended for a third year.

To apply, please send a brief introductory email with the subject line “Editing Fellow - Denver.” The email should include your resume and ONE writing sample, which can be any piece you’re comfortable sharing: academic essays, short fiction, previous work, etc.

We will be reviewing and contacting applicants about next steps. You'll need to pass an initial editing test as part of our application process. If you pass our initial test, you will then have to complete a paid trial that can last up to one week, where a project manager will help you get up to speed with our writing conventions and formatting requirements. If the trial goes well, we'll move forward with hiring.
