Student editors are students who have exemplary writing, editing, and leadership skills. There are also some editorial positions that focus less on writing and more on artistic and/or technological skills. As leaders of the publication, it is essential that all student editors are approachable and have the ability to work well with their peers. While not required, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have some knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, etc.) or other digital editing programs.
