Literary Mama Needs Editorial Help!
Got any newsletter or marketing experience? Literary Mama is seeking an e-zine editor! Work entails formatting and copy editing the weekly newsletter on a strict deadline, as well as research and reporting (not on deadline) about what kinds of blurbs generate the most click-throughs, what kind of content our readers are most hungry for, and who our readers are.
The job requires a gimlet eye for detail, a rudimentary knowledge of HTML, and editorial experience. The editor would also need to learn GraphicMail.
This is not a paid position – we are all volunteers here. But it’s part-time, and you’ll get a behind the scenes peek at running an online publication, a fabulous line on your resume, and access to lots of great writers and editors.
