How long does the application process for becoming a Scribbr editor take?

The application process consists of three steps that you must successfully complete to become an active editor within our system:

  1. Scribbr language quiz: 30 minutes
  2. Scribbr application assignment: 2.5 hours
  3. Scribbr Academy: 4 to 16 hours depending on your experience

The speed at which you are able to complete the application process depends on your availability and the level of your work you submit. For us, it is important not only that you edit according to our guidelines, but also that you feel you have enough experience with us to make the leap to being an active Scribbr editor.

Throughout the process, you will receive feedback from experienced editors – so no matter what happens, you won’t be wasting your time!
