The role of an editor is to gather, create, revise and coordinate material for a publication. They will receive pitches and review stories and trends to produce articles and features that appeal to the publication's readership and reflect its tone and style. As well as working with writers to offer suggestions and feedback, editors will often have their own writing duties and will be expected to generate their own material for the publication. The skills required of an editor include, to name a few, a keen eye for detail, impeccable grammar, proofreading abilities, creative flair when writing, organisation, time management and excellent written and verbal communication.
