An Editor-at-Large is a journalist who contributes content to a publication.
Unlike an editor who works on a publication from day-to-day and are hands on, an editor-at-large will contribute content on a regular or semi-regular basis and will have less of a say on a specific field such as layout,pictures or the publication’s direction.
However, unlike a writer they are allowed their own preferences in the content they have to generate and don’t have to justify their ideas to the main editor. They also frequently come up with ideas for other writers to research and write.
