Freelance Copy Editor For Party Blog

REMOTE

Dallas, Texas, United States

Contract

Hadley Designs, a leading online stationery and party supply retail company, is seeking a freelance copy editor to edit short-form and long-form content, such as blogs, emails, and product copy.

We want someone who consistently delivers near-flawless copy edits. Our editor must be able to spot the tiniest of errors while keeping an eye on the big picture—logic, flow, repetition, etc.

We’re looking for a creative talent who can take direction, but who is also a self-starter. We’re a high-energy, tight-knit group who also collaborate to meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment. If you appreciate great copy and enjoy the challenge of crafting great work, please send your resume with a link to your portfolio.

The salary is commensurate based on ability and could possibly become a full-time role in the future for the right candidate.

Requirements for consideration:

  • 2+ years of copy editing experience
  • Degree in English, Journalism, or equivalent work experience

  • An uncompromising approach to hitting deadlines

  • Ensure consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts and capitalization.
