Job Description

Foreign Policy is a magazine of global news and ideas. We explain Washington to the world and the world to Americans—and we do that by covering big trends in not only security and defense but also issues surrounding climate change, immigration, politics, culture, and more. FP is more than just a magazine: It has a flourishing podcast division, regular high-profile virtual events, and an analytics division that has been at the forefront of research on gender parity, 5G and security, and more.

We are seeking a meticulous, internationally aware full-time copy editor to join FP’s copy desk. The person in this role will copy-edit and fact-check articles ranging from 800-word news briefs to 6,000-word long-form articles. Although we are all currently working remotely, ideally the person in this role would be based in Washington, D.C.

Job Requirements

  • At least two years of professional copy-editing experience, particularly with articles about foreign policy and international news
  • Knowledge and mastery of AP style
  • Perfectionism with spelling, grammar, punctuation, and usage
  • Passionate about detail and getting things right
  • Awareness of world events
  • Ability to maintain composure in a boisterous, fast-paced newsroom
  • Speed when it comes to time-sensitive articles
  • Familiarity with WordPress or the ability to learn it quickly when provided basic instruction
  • Ability to make judgments among competing English transliterations of foreign words
  • Good judgment to know when to adhere to house style and when to allow writers artistic license
  • Flexibility related to scheduled start time
  • Fact-checking experience is a plus.
  • Foreign-language skills are a plus.

This position is covered by a collective bargaining agreement 

Foreign Policy is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to an inclusive environment for all employees. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need.
