Fort Worth seeks a copy editor:
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is looking for a talented and enthusiastic copy editor for the news copy desk. The ideal candidate is a nitpicker who can see the big picture, a grammarian who knows when to break the rules, a wordsmith who can operate a calculator, a precisionist who can write a clever headline.
The news copy desk handles news and business copy from the wire services, from our newsrooms in Fort Worth, Arlington and northeast Tarrant County and from the paper's bureaus in Austin and Washington.
A minimum of three years' experience is preferred, but we will consider exceptionally talented applicants with less, including recent college graduates who have desk experience at their college papers and through summer jobs or internships at real-world dailies.
Please mail or e-mail a resume and cover letter to:
