Editors typically edit one “day” a week, editing and scheduling articles to run at prescribed times for those dates. Depending on available articles, this work can often be done 2-3 days in advance of the day, or the evening prior. Advance work is preferred as it gives editors time to engage in conversation with authors as needed for questions or complex edits. Typical time required is 2-5 hours per week.
We are currently looking for editors who can take responsibility for publication review for Mondays and Thursdays.
If interested or if you’d like to learn more, please contact editor-at-streets.mn.
