Writer Editor Jobs

Writer Editor Overview


Writer editors are responsible for reviewing and revising content created by writers before it's published. They are generally expected to have a firm understanding of writing styles and above-average writing skills, especially in regards to grammar and punctuation. They oftentimes have to work under strict deadlines to ensure content is correct and finalized before it's published. Editors often play a role in the selection of content for a publication, working with writers to help develop ideas and stories that are appropriate for publications. They also may be required to fact check content using standard references to ensure accurate content. The skills held by writer editors may also qualify them for positions as copywriters, editorial assistants or proof readers.

Writer Editor Education Requirements


Generally, writer editors must have at least a bachelor’s degree although some are able to obtain employment in less established companies with just a high school diploma or GED. Ideal editor candidates hold a bachelor’s degree in English, communications or journalism, with a master's degree or higher suggested to remain competitive for positions in more established publications. Prior editing experience, such as for a college newspaper or local publications, is also beneficial for helping secure employment in the field.

Writer Editor Job Market


The job outlook for writer editor jobs is expected to decline approximately 2 percent from 2012 to 2022, which shows little to no change compared to the average for all occupations. Employment opportunities are projected to decline in print companies due to competition from online publications. The few traditional positions that remain in established magazines and newspapers will be highly competitive though new positions will be available for online publications but typically for less pay.

Writer Editor Salary


The median annual salary for writer editor jobs is $53,880 per year, with some making more than $100,000 per year. Salary ranges vary based on location, type of editing performed, years of experience and the company worked for.
