  • Effectively package stories with strong visuals and display that will appeal to The Post readership, in collaboration with photo, design and web teams
  • Work closely with writers from start to finish: Give clear direction, provide constructive feedback and produce copy that’s both lively and logical
  • Plan and coordinate coverage around awards shows and other special events
