Publication Editor

As opposed to copy editors (who monitor grammar and spelling in journalism), the term “editor” used more broadly applies to someone making editorial decisions for a publication. They may manage a particular section or an entire journalism outlet. These professionals edit writers’ stories for content, field pitches from freelancers, create an editorial calendar for what will publish when, and help build out story ideas with their staffs. The vast majority of editors start out as writers, so they have firm grasps on the tenets of ethical and captivating journalism.
