We’re looking for a versatile and highly organized contract editor to join our editorial team for six months, from March through August 2023.
The assistant editor will have a hand in all aspects of the publication of the Oxford American and will utilize experience working for other publications to acquire new work and contribute to complex conversations about Southern culture and representation. Primary duties will include finding and editing pieces for print publication and OxfordAmerican.org with a particular focus on nonfiction. This could include a 6,000-word essay with heavy reporting, a Q&A with a visual artist, or a micro memoir.
Though this position is short-term, the role offers opportunities for mentorship and growth.
