What do magazine editors do?
I like popular mechanics and I'd love to work at a magazine someday. Seems like editors get respect and are in the movies all the time as the top of the magazine. But what do they REALLY do? What's a day-in-the-life of a magazine editor like?
Thanks in advance editor publishing magazine
On a low-level a rank and file magazine editor improves the writing of others for grammar, syntax, style and punctuation. At a high-level in a magazine hierarchy a magazine editor would set the tone of the magazine, its stylistic point of view, lead its editorial direction, the stories it covers and manage the overall writing, design and production of a magazine. If I left anything out hopefully others will fill in whatever gaps I missed. I hope this is helpful to you.
