What are you looking for?
We are looking for people who are available 2-3 days per month (our crack scheduler, Baron Magnus, does a monthly roster for the editors, taking into consideration everyone’s availability for the month). You need to have access to the internet, be on Facebook, and have the ability to edit articles and announcements. Access to photo editing software is a plus. We use WordPress for the blog, and have a good tutorial available for new editors.
On your editing day, you go through the in-box, edit and put up any articles there, check for corporate or officer announcements, and check the drafts section to see what is in the queue.
When we started, we had editors with specific coverage areas (cooking, different regions of the Kingdom, martial arts, etc.) but that’s changed – you can solicit articles on any topic, and we all cover the general news equally. Anything contentious gets discussed on our private FB page before being posted.
Do I need to have a title or rank to be an editor?
How do I apply?
Send a letter (you can attach your SCA and mundane resumes if you’d like) to the Gazette email at email@example.com. Tell us about yourself and why you would like to be a Gazette editor. We’d love to hear from you!
