Job Description for Editorial Writer

Newspapers and other media outlets draw a strong dividing line between news writing - which is generally covered by the bulk of their staff - and editorial. An editorial writer is a writer who outwardly expresses opinions of current events in a wide range of areas, and they are generally expected to write opinionated but factually-based essays. Most successful editorial writers attempt to be provocative and write strongly; the essays they write are not only meant to persuade public opinion, but also to draw interest and attention.
