Primary Copy Editor

In today's day and age, the accuracy of published information is of the utmost importance. Are you interested in being the first set of eyes on news, opinion, Statement and Michigan in Color articles coming straight from Daily writers? If so, Copy is for you.

The Copy Desk is the backbone of The Daily and by being a part of it, you’ll have two major responsibilities: fact-checking and grammar checking. While basic fact-checking includes names, titles, quotes, spelling and hyperlinks, grammar checking is done using the Associated Press Stylebook rules and guidelines. Through your work, you’ll ensure The Daily upholds its credibility within the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor communities. Anyone with an interest in editing — regardless of experience or academic background — is encouraged to apply!

This position is closed. Please check back next semester to apply.
