FEM copy editors are expected to edit articles every week, focusing primarily on the grammar, style, and logical flow of each article that they edit.
DISCLAIMER: Answering "yes" to having an interest in writing does NOT guarantee that you will be able to write for FEM. Copy editors do not write for their first quarter with FEM, but instead focus solely on the editing process.
New copy editors will begin editing after attending training sessions, dates TBD.
If you have any questions about the application, please feel free to email [email protected] or [email protected] This application is due at 11:50PM on October 4, 2015.
