• Layout Director

The layout director oversees design production for each issue, coordinates freelance page designers, sends each issue to print and designs social media graphics and fundraising posters. Applicants should be well-versed in Adobe Creative Suite and are expected to submit a portfolio.

Web Editor

The web editor manages our website and regularly posts on social media. Though our site is hosted via WordPress, applicants don’t need to have experience with the platform — all that’s required is a willingness to learn. 

Copy Editors

Copy editors review final copy for clarify, AP style and fact errors. No prior experience is required, but a knowledge of AP style is a must.
