Word of the Nerd is looking for editors! There are three open positions currently. Editors, under the direction of the Editor-In-Chief and Senior Editor, are responsible for checking submitted articles for spelling, grammar, and proper formatting as directed by site policy. Editors also insert images and SEO into articles and publish through WordPress.
There is no monetary compensation. Word of the Nerd operates with an all-volunteer staff of nearly 40 writers and support staff. However, we do try to provide as many perks as we can: access to weekly comics, revenue sharing for contributing editors and staff, promotional merchandise, and more.
Applicants must be able to work directly with writers to assist them in preparing their articles for publishing. An extreme attention to detail and an adherence to policy and site guidelines are needed, as well as a passion for the English language.
Knowledge of WordPress and style manual (AP, Chicago, etc.) guidelines are desired, as well as knowledge of pop culture including comic books, movies, video games, and more. Applicants must be able to work within a flexible schedule, including some weekend time. Post high-school education in writing and/or editing is preferred.
This is an opportunity to join an established site and online community. Help us build and maintain an online presence and grow into a successful and profitable business. We’re looking to branch out to other areas of media and community outreach.
Working for Word of the Nerd is a great way to gain potential college credit for related courses and gain practical experience by working in an established and structured environment.
