We're really bummed we're not at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit right now! You can keep up with the goings-on by checking out their LiveStream, following the #AMC2011 hashtag on Twitter, or by browsing their conference guide for more online interaction.
And you? What are your reactions? What have you been reading?
We're seeking a senior editor to join our staff in a part-time, but ongoing, capacity.
For more than 15 years, Bitch Media has published Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture, a quarterly magazine devoted to media- and pop-culture critique and analysis. Each issue of Bitch offers commentary on our media-driven world via essays, columns, reviews, and interviews with artists, thinkers, and culture-makers. As a reader-supported magazine, we have a unique publishing model that allows our content to be free of the dictates of advertisers and owners. And as a staff of people who love to read and learn from others, we value smart, engaging, and witty writing and editing.
Our ideal candidate for the Senior Editor position is someone who values those things as well, and who's ready to join an evolving, highly collaborative nonprofit workplace. We're not looking for someone to simply grab a chair and start in on a pile of grunt work (although, truth be told, there will be some grunt work). We want someone whose ideas, vision, and passion will help us continue to make content and programming that people depend on and care about.
Every month in our newsletter (sign up on the homepage!), we survey our staffers and readers on their top five in a given category, complete with options, results and further comment space here on the Bitch blog. Lend a vote and give us five, or share your own idea after the jump!
We've got a publishing internship opening on the business side of Bitch in early July at our Portland office and would LOVE it if you could help us spread the word (or apply)! We're accepting applications now, and will be doing interviews later this month on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
