Up your editing game with the AIR hive mind

One of AIR’s greatest assets is our collective brain trust—from the knowledge shared on the AIRdaily to the meet-ups hosted to gather regional AIRsters. Our peer-to-peer mentoring program is another way AIR orchestrates this passing of expertise. In this vein, AIR is pleased to announce that we are looking for candidates interested in becoming better editors through our Better Edit FellowshipWe’re pleased to be partnering with PRNDI—the Public Radio News Directors Inc.—on this initiative.

What is The Better Edit Fellowship and how can I apply?   
The demand for good editors in podcasting, public radio, and audio stories outpaces the availability of ready talent. AIR hears this, so we’ve tapped some of the best editors in the business to give focused attention to 12 aspiring editors chosen through a competitive selection process.

If you’re chosen, we’ll match you with an editor. You’ll work for four hours over the course of 90 days to whip your project into shape and upskill your editing. Think of it as an extended story meeting where a great editor gives you insight into how their mind works and into how they help a producer structure a story or project.

What skills can I expect to touch on during the fellowship?
The Better Edit Fellows will learn how to pull diamonds out of the rough. Your editor-mentor will work with you to identify how to unfurl the pieces and then tie them back up together into something great. You’ll come away from the fellowship ready to apply this understanding of listening for editing and structuring audio stories to yours and others’ work.

Who can apply?
You must be either an AIR or PRNDI member in good standing. As an AIR member, you must also have been in the network for at least six months. Please read more about Fellowship eligibility here.
