Our copy editors are the gatekeeper’s of District. They are the ones that make sure every article meets our high award-winning standards of journalism quality. A basic understanding of AP style is required and formal training will be conducted for those hired. Copy editors are also in charge of managing the publishing schedule and making sure writers and photographers meet their assigned deadlines. Additionally, it’s important that those interested have an advanced and keen sense of journalism, grammar, punctuation and structure.
No journalism experience whatsoever. This position is someone outside of the news-writing circle that isn’t familiarized with the dynamics of journalism and can provide an unbiased and detached perspective. They must be a powerhouse of ideas, deconstructing story ideas and brainstorming possibilities, figuring out new and interesting ways to present stories and create multimedia content. They are in charge of managing, marketing and advertising campaigns to spread District throughout campus. The marketing coordinator holds weekly meetings with the Creative Director, the Social Media Director and the Editor-in-Chief to discuss future projects and brainstorm new ideas.
