  • Contribute to internal written materials, including project summaries, website copy, and contract proposals.

The position requires a bachelor’s degree and at least two years of experience in writing and editing for corporate, nonprofit, government, marketing/communications consulting, or news organizations; familiarity with AP style is a plus.
