Issues 64 to 81

RELEVANT’s bimonthly print magazine explores the intersection of faith and culture, featuring profiles on bands and celebrities, journalistic think pieces on major issues and advice on life issues facing 20- and 30-somethings. I was the final pair of eyes on each page before it got uploaded to the printer, and I did several editing rounds on each piece, including fact-checking; line editing; copy editing; copy-fitting and filling in pull quotes, sidebars and photo captions. I did some development editing and occasionally wrote and assigned articles, as well.


August 2013 to April 2016

I managed the feature-length content for the website from start to finish. I assigned article ideas and screened and curated pitches from writers, working with them on deadline and article direction and voice. I wrote headlines and subtitles; coordinated the web features schedule; edited articles for voice, clarity, grammar and AP style; formatted the articles for the website using basic HTML; and made sure the articles got posted. I also ran RELEVANT’s social media accounts as needed and copy edited daily “slices” on the site (short, newsy articles that are constantly updating on the homepage).


Volume 36: Issue 1 to 30

As the features editor, I was in charge of the features section for every weekly issue. I developed story ideas, assigned them to a team of three to four reporters and led the reporters through the writing process—helping them with direction and sources and giving them feedback on their drafts.


Issue 6 and 7

I assigned features to a team of freelance writers and coordinated with them on deadline, article angle and voice. I also fact-checked; line edited; copyedited; copyfit; and filled in pullquotes, sidebars and photo captions for each issue.
