Subeditor

Do you want to help writers improve their pieces and foster talent? Are you a massive perfectionist? Do you love polishing the poetics of a paragraph and the shapely curves of a comma? (Okay so maybe not, but nonetheless) do you want to subedit for Unimelb Adventures?

Position Description

    • What’s your favourite thing about uni?

    • Do you have any experience subediting? (No worries if you don’t, we’re looking for enthusiasm just as much as experience!)
  • Pitch us an article idea!
  • If you have any samples of your editing/writing, include one or two!
