South Carolina Living magazine, the Palmetto State’s largest print publication, seeks a can-do journalist to be our new Chief Copy Editor.

Our ideal candidate is a tactful diplomat and patient teacher with strong copy editing, line editing, writing coach and design consulting skills. You’ll work with 18 local-page editors, helping them make the most of their customized editions each month, and shepherding those pages through the production process from manuscript to page proof.

The Chief Copy Editor will also proof statewide editorial pages common to all editions and coordinate the monthly posting of statewide web and social media content. We’ve also got plenty of writing and photography opportunities if you want to use your creative skills outside of the office every so often.

Our cooperatives use dedicated pages in each issue as their primary member-facing communications channel.
