About the Job
DownBeat magazine, the world's leading journal for jazz, blues and improvised music, seeks a top-flight associate editor to join our team. We require excellent copy-editing and organizational skills, and the ability to develop, assign and track articles, work with writers and meet tight deadlines. The successful candidate will be detail-oriented and have a strong background in AP Style, as well as knowledge of print and digital media publishing. And, of course, we require a deep knowledge of music, especially jazz and improvised music. If you are a musician, that's a plus, but journalism chops come first. Salary commensurate with experience. To be considered, please send a cover letter, resume, three clips and one example of editing skills.
