Shameless magazine, Canada’s independent, feminist voice for young women and trans youth, is expanding its editorial team. Are you devoted to grassroots publishing? Do you have a commitment to anti-oppression and inclusive feminist politics? Do you have some time to volunteer and a vision for Shameless? Then we need you.
We are looking for smart, sassy, shameless people to fill the following roles:
• A Managing Editor, who will oversee the magazine’s editorial production, assign and edit stories, work with writers and collaborate with editorial staff.
• A Web Editor, who will develop projects and content for the website, coordinate our community blog, and develop a link between the print and online components of the magazine.
• Associate Editors, to assign and edit stories and work with writers.
We are looking for people who work well collaboratively, who have a good sense of Shameless’s editorial vision, who are committed to anti-racist feminist politics, who have some editorial or publishing skills, and who are excellent communicators and work well over email (Shameless has no office).
Please check out our detailed job descriptions.
Like all roles on this volunteer-run magazine, these positions are unpaid. (If you have ideas for how we can change that, then please get in touch!)
We strongly encourage applications from women of colour and First Nations women and those with experience with anti-racist feminist politics and/or anti-racist feminist organizations. Preference will be given to residents of the Greater Toronto Area to facilitate face-to-face meetings with magazine staff.
Please email a resume, a cover letter containing your ideas for the magazine/website, and three writing samples (published or unpublished) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 22, 2010. We’ll contact you if we’d like to set up an interview.
