Shameless needs new bloggers: Application Deadline Extended
Shameless is still looking for new bloggers to join our team, and we’ve extended the application deadline until Friday, September 19. See below for details and how to apply.
We’re looking for new people to join our team of bloggers.
Bloggers post once a week or more, keep up with what’s happening on the blog and contribute to discussions in comments. Like all other positions with our volunteer-run magazine, blogging is unpaid.
We are also looking for someone to take over our Film Friday column. Like our Comics are for Everybody and Wired Wednesday columns, Shameless Film Fridays look at films from a feminist perspective, or highlight films that deserve the attention of our readers.
Have another idea for a column you want to pitch to us? We’d love to hear about it.
Ideal candidates 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 some experience as a writer or blogger 4) 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.
To apply, send a cover letter and two examples of things you would blog about (one of which should be written up as a sample post) to Cate Simpson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS SEPTEMBER 19, 2008.
