The News Review seeks applicants for the position of editor.
The ideal person will be a city resident, familiar with the community. She or he will be a strong writer and editor capable of producing consistent and highly readable copy working within a team. While previous editorial or newspaper experience is a plus, common sense, an eagle eye, good person-to-person skills and a can-do attitude are primary. The successful candidate will be conversant with modern technology, particularly as it applies to printing, including familiarity with graphics, spreadsheets, camera-ready copy and file management; will be comfortable working in a peer situation with a mix of volunteers and paid staff and adept at addressing groups of citizens and city businesses and government to express the paper’s message. The Greenbelt News Review is a worker cooperative. This position is part time, approximately 16 hours per week and on a schedule aligned with newspaper publication. This will generally include office hours and some evening work Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Questions may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. A short letter of application and a resume no more than two pages in length should be sent to the same email address by no later than January 26.
