Virginia Living magazine is looking for an experienced Associate Editor. Join us in producing the Commonwealth’s premier lifestyle magazine. We publish a bi-monthly in print and manage the Virginia Living website, social media accounts, and digital newsletters; so the job involves some digital and marketing writing in addition to editorial content.  

We are a small and congenial group, and we all do a bit of everything. The Associate Editor will participate in all aspects of the Virginia Living’s editorial content, from planning, copyediting, proofreading, and communicating with writers to entering last-minute corrections in InCopy before going to press (magazine style is AP with some house quirks). You'll have the opportunity to write front-of-book articles and profiles. 

Writing and proofreading responsibilities include print articles, e-newsletters, e-store blurbs, collateral marketing materials and more. Administrative tasks might include sending writer contracts or submitting source addresses to circulation for comp issue mailings.  

We welcome applicants with a deep curiosity about Virginia—its urban and rural areas, people, wineries, outdoor life, entrepreneurs, restaurants, and food innovators. We hope you have an eye for trends, an ear for great storytelling, and the ability to develop engaging feature story ideas. Please share published writing samples with your resume and tell us what you love about magazines. Send to
