Freelance Copy Editor at TPN

over 1 year ago
I proofread drafts, making sure that everything grammatical and legal reads clearly and accurately. Although most freelance copy editors use Track Changes on Microsoft Word or Google Documents to edit clients' work, the freelancers at TPN usually make changes to physical paper with proofreading marks (the infamous red marker!). On the rare occasion, we do make edits digitally, but most of the work is done on physical paper. The kinds of advertising documents I work on range from posters to pamphlets to coupons to social media posts to even presentations within the companies.

Copy Editor at The Anchor

over 1 year ago
As a copy editor for The Anchor, you only attend half hour Sunday meetings, distribute papers on Wednesdays, and work Monday evenings from about 5:30 until whenever the paper is done, so it’s pretty doable as a job! Copy editors are some of the last people to leave the Anchor office on Mondays, as they have to proofread every page. However, while you wait for writers and section editors to hand you pages, there is time to do homework, so it’s a very student-friendly position!
