Wit & Delight is hiring! We’re looking for a part-time assistant editor to join our editorial team in producing content for Wit & Delight. We are also looking for writers to join our team of contributors.
We are committed to diversity in both our staff and writers and recognize that BIPOC voices are currently underrepresented in both of these areas. We are reflecting only a portion of our audience in our current content model and we are actively working to change this. As was outlined in this post earlier this month, we are looking to hire BIPOC voices for these roles at this time.
You can find all of the details on how to apply below. We look forward to hearing from you!

The assistant editor will work with the editorial team to produce creative and detail-oriented editorial content for Wit & Delight. This role will report directly to Wit & Delight’s editorial director and will also act as a collaborator with our founder, Kate Arends. The assistant editor will also be responsible for contributing content ideas that align with the overall editorial vision for the website.
