Shameless needs a new Web Editor!
Our fantastic web editor, Thea Lim, is stepping down and leaving town to pursue her many talents. She will be sorely missed and very difficult to replace, but we thought we’d give it a try… Shameless needs a new Web Editor! Shameless Magazine, Canada’s independent, feminist voice for teens and young women, is looking for a new web editor to help manage and grow our busy, lively blog.
In addition to contributing to our blog, our web editor keeps an eye out for typos, broken links and glitches, maintains good communication with our bloggers and helps us find new ones, and helps make sure that new content appears regularly. The position offers great experience in online publishing, is part-time, flexible, and (like all other positions with our volunteer-run magazine) unpaid.
The ideal candidate will: 1) understand and be passionate about the values of Shameless Magazine. 2) have some familiarity with online writing and the feminist (or progressive) blogosphere 3) have a background as a writer or blogger and strong editing skills 4) be very well organized and able to manage a team of volunteer bloggers 5) Have some interest in and knowledge of our broad array of topics including politics, pop culture, independent arts, reproductive rights, gender and sexuality, violence against women, media criticism, size acceptance, and the intersectionality of feminism with race, class, sexuality and ability. Shameless Magazine is an equal opportunity employer.
While we encourage everyone who is interested to apply, a preference will be given to residents of the Greater Toronto Area to facilitate the occasional face to face meetings. Due to funding concerns ONLY CANADIAN APPLICANTS will be considered.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS FRIDAY, MAY 9
If you are interested in applying send us a resume and a letter telling us why you’re the person for the job to Stacey May Fowles and Megan Griffith-Greene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shameless thanks all applicants for their interest in this position; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
