Copy Edit Staff do not need previous journalism experience. A background in English or strong editing skills are preferred, but we will provide training to supplement. We want people who think critically and are willing to work. We want passionate people interested in elevating Black voices and perspectives.


Copy Staff are responsible for editing article drafts on a weekly basis. Because the work coincides with Staff Writer deadlines, some weeks will be more work intensive than others. Minimum time commitment is between 2 and 4 hours per week.

Copy Staff must attend mandatory All Staff meetings twice per quarter, and must attend all 1/2 hour weekly section meetings unless excused by the section editor. There is a minimum 1 office hour per week, to be met at any time that the building is open. Office hour time can be used to review style guides, edit copy, collaborate with other staff members, and more.

All Nommo Staff must participate in at least 1 Nommo event per quarter such as tabling, Black Weds, or other events.


Nommo provides an opportunity to improve and sharpen your writing and editing skills with the help of a talented and dynamic team. Nommo supplies the space to propose and produce creative content for print and digital platforms, including for Copy Staff who have an interest in broadening their skills into other sections.
