CairoContra is the first hub in Cairo to train content creators and run the only independent, entertainment Egyptian English magazine written by youth for youth. They offered a variety of interactive workshops, all designed to deliver practical training that prepares its attendees for the world of content creation, and an internship program which includes intensive training and on-the-job experience within the Contra magazine.
The magazine has art, film & TV, gaming, music, lifestyle, beauty & fashion, food, travel, and fitness & health. Also, there are the fiction and poetry sections.
Since the goal was to develop content creators’ and writers’ skills, my role as a copyeditor was to follow up with writers to adhere to the editorial calendar and copyedit their English articles while reserving their style.
Also, we would discuss the pieces of writing to shed light on the areas of improvement, then publish the work accordingly.
