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.
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.
Ability to work well with others in an online setting and use WordPress and Slack.
Discretion: for example, we'll ask that you not blog about the details of your job, though it's fine for you to publicly say that you have the job.
Reliability: all of the magazine’s departments depend on the team of copy editors to clear pieces in a timely fashion before each issue is published, so you must be able to reliably do some editing every week.
Please note that while on staff, copy editors may not submit to Strange Horizons as authors.
One to two hours each week.

This will be a special issue of Strange Horizons published at the end of July 2018, and it will focus on the work of writers who are black, indigenous, and/or people of color from the Southeastern USA.
