We’re looking for a NEWS EDITOR

This position has been filled.

You don’t need to be a pro, but you do need to have background in geek/culture writing, and in managing people. You’ll also need a working knowledge of journalistic ethics (libel, conflict of interest, fair use/dealing, how to source and credit images), and SEO (just a smidge, really).

Your Responsibilities Would Include:

  • Writing news!
  • Planning, assigning, and developing stories.
  • Verifying facts, dates, and sources.
  • Copyediting quick-response news articles, and news roundups. (Chicago)
  • Monitoring social media.
  • Participating in weekly editorial meetings.

 The Ideal Candidate:

  • Is a newshound who’s passionate about comics, culture, and journalism.
  • Is comfortable with WordPress, Google Drive, and Photoshop (or equivalent).
  • Has a contact list full of solid bloggers and freelancers (or is a talented networker).
  • Is excited about working with WWAC as we grow online and move into print (yup, that’s the goal).
  • Is an intersectional feminist progressive who grooves with our core values.
  • Has daytime EST availability.

We Can Offer You:

  • A small, highly-collaborative editorial team and a no-bullshit work environment.
  • The chance to build big, collaborative projects with our writers and editors.
  • Freedom to manage and shape your section (mostly) as you see fit.
  • Press access and interview opportunities.
  • Digital previews and ARCs.
  • No money though. Not yet. (We’re all waiting on that.)


To apply, fill out the form below. No resumes or cover letters, please.
