Copy editing positions have been filled. Thank you! Strange Horizons is on the hunt for a few new volunteers to add to our copy editing team. These folks share the responsibility for polishing the magazine’s content before publication by catching typos, fixing funky sentence structure, and applying our house style guide. If that sounds like something that interests you, read on. Responsibilities Read through pieces before publication and check spelling, grammar, punctuation, formatting, consistency, etc.; enforce Strange Horizons house style; note your suggested changes and queries for department editors to address. Requirements Ability to work well with others in an online setting and use WordPress and Slack.
