Job Description

The Virgin Islands Daily News needs a copy editor to rotate on the desk between sections and create quality page designs. The Daily News is a six-day daily in a news market that yields a dozen major stories each week.

The Daily News is the territory's government watchdog, and we have a vigorous and aggressive First Amendment approach. We are lookig for a copy editor able to edit news, features and sports stories for accuracy and consistency of facts, grammar, punctuation, spelling and AP style.

Please include with your resume several examples of your headlines, as well as samples of pages you have designed. We work with InCopy and InDesign on the BLOX/Town News system, so skills in those programs are a plus, but not a requirement. 

The Virgin Islands Daily News is the newspaper of record in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. We have a proud history of award-winning journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Along with numerous other honors, our staff has been honored with the national Associated Press Managing Editors Public Service Award; Associated Press Sports Editors awards for reporting; the Investigative Reporters and Editors award for investigative reporting; and the ABA Silver Gavel for investigative reporting on law enforcement and justice.

We are located on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a territory of the United States. St. Thomas is one of the world's top cruise destinations with vibrant culture and beautiful beaches and coral reefs. Nearby, St. John is home to Virgin Islands National Park. 

To apply, please e-mail a cover letter, resume and newspaper pages clearly marked to indicate stories you have edited, headlines you have written and pages you have designed. Address your application to Managing Editor Stephen Cheslik at
