The successful candidate will possess the ability to conceptualize and package a wide variety of compelling content covering the worlds of entertainment and pop culture and have already established contacts with studio and celebrity publicists.

An obsession with pop culture and great writing are a must, as are top organizational skills and a detail-oriented mind.

S/he should have a strong visual sense and be able to clearly convey ideas to photo and art departments. S/he should be meticulous, resourceful, conscientious, and a self-starter.

This position’s dedicated components include:

Familiarity with InCopy as well as a background in women’s lifestyle is a plus.
