LSQ Blog Managing Editor Application
About LSQ:
Luna Station Quarterly is a grassroots, independent magazine with an international readership, dedicated to publishing great genre fiction (sci-fi/fantasy, all that weird stuff that's fun to read, etc.) by emerging women-identified writers. We also have a blog that publishes essays, informative articles, book reviews and author interviews. We're currently in our 8th year of publication!

We support a positive, affirming atmosphere and encourage writers who are just starting out. We publish stories we love, no matter the author's level of experience.

Postion Description:

We are seeking a passionate editor to run our blog on a volunteer basis. Candidates should have a knack and love for writing and editing (or deep desire to learn), a passion for scifi/fantasy and associated fields/mediums, and a desire to uplift women writers and fans.

New editors are welcome to apply. Passion about the project and the ability to learn quickly will outweigh lack of experience. Women-identified applicants are preferred and POC editors are highly encouraged to apply!

Responsibilities:

• Providing feedback to contributors, and editing/proofreading other writers’ content.
• Optimizing content for search engines (ensuring links work, adding images, etc).
• Writing occasional fill-in posts.
• Conducting analytical projects to improve blog strategies/tactics.
• Contributing to efforts to expand our blog's overall reach.

Requirements:

• A passion for our mission.
• The willingness to work to 3-10 hours per week, depending on your level of engagement and availability.
• Solid writing and editing/proofreading skills.
• Excellent organizational skills.
• Ability to work independently and manage projects with many moving parts.

Nice to haves (but not necessary at all):
• Some experience in graphics editing and creation.
• Active social media presence.

For those with less experience: You are welcome to apply. Your extra requirements are having the ability to learn quickly and a strong interest in learning the ropes of running a daily blog.

This position will start immediately upon acceptance.
