Editor-in-chief job @ magazine

In The Fray Magazine ( http://inthefray.org), an online, award-winning, international publication that seeks to question, inform, and inspire conversations about identity and community, is looking for an Editor-In-Chief to manage the magazine's editorial staff and plan upcoming issues. Our organization is nonprofit and run by an all-volunteer staff, so there is only a very small honorarium for this position (half to be paid every six months), but it is a wonderful opportunity to work with a team of talented and passionate writers, editors, and artists; learn about online publishing; and influence public discussions about issues that you are passionate about.

We are looking for a talented writer, editor, and manager to oversee the magazine's day-to-day operations, recruit new contributors and staff members, plan special issues, coordinate an all-volunteer staff of about 12, ensure that about 5-7 stories are published each month in a timely manner, write a monthly preview to each edition of the magazine, and plan and lead regular editorial board meetings each month. For this position, top-notch organization skills, reliability, the ability to manage a team of volunteers, enthusiasm, and creativity count for just as much, if not more, than editorial experience.

We seek someone who can commit to working with us for at least one year for about 8 to 10 hours each week. All work can be done from your home, as you will communicate with other editors and writers primarily through e-mail and the phone. (Though we do not have an office, many of our staff live in New York City, and get together every few months.) To learn more about In The Fray and what we publish, please visit http://inthefray.org/about.

If you are interested in this position, please send a resume, two professional references and cover letter to Ilie Mitaru, Executive Director, at ilie@inthefray.org

Please do not apply if you are unsure whether you will be able to commit 8 to 10 hours a week at least for one year.

Note: The organization is currently in a exciting transitional period: We are bringing on new staff, realigning our editorial direction and are launching a new website This is a great opportunity for recent graduates to learn the ins-and-outs of an independent publication. Although this is a part-time commitment, the workload will be significantly more than aforementioned time for the first few months as we launch fundraising campaigns and orient new staff.
