Do you hate the passive voice? Are you constantly correcting other people’s grammar? Do spelling errors cause you physical pain? Do you feel compelled to correct punctuation errors no matter how small? Can you spot a misplaced modifier from across the room and will you stop what you are doing to put it in place? Will you argue about the Oxford comma? Do you know and love AP Style? If you answered yes to each of these questions (if you really care whether we chose to use “each” or “all” in that last line) you might be ready to join the Delta Defense Content Team.
