Monthly Rag Editor Application

NOTE: Feminist & Gender Studies will NOT be accepting applications until Block 5 2017. An Editor Apprentice (unpaid) will be appointed during Block 6 2017 and will serve during the 2017-2018 academic year. After this trial period, a new Editor will serve during the 2018-2019 and 2019-2010 academic years.

The Monthly Rag is a newsletter published by the Feminist & Gender Studies Program (FGS) Student Advisory Council (SAC). The Rag provides the Colorado College community with feminist analyses of historical and contemporary news, interests, and ideas.

While proofs must be submitted to the Rag Supervisor, Heidi R. Lewis, for review, the content is the final responsibility of the Editor. The Editor is responsible for publishing the Rag on time, corresponding with writers regarding content, proofreading, copyediting and checking submissions for factual inaccuracies. In some cases, the Editor may also revise materials. The Editor must also ensure that content is the appropriate length. If content is too long, for instance, it must be edited very carefully to fit the space available. Finally, the Editor is responsible for answering correspondence regarding the Rag and its content. However, some correspondence may be forwarded to the Supervisor and/or Director of Feminist & Gender Studies, depending on the level of appropriateness.

The Editor must demonstrate: Strong work ethic. Ability to work autonomously. Strong comprehension, writing, and oral communication skills. Attentive. Reliable. Experience with or ability to learn design software, such as Microsoft Publisher, Photoshop, or InDesign.

Please complete this application by the last day of Block 5 at 5 pm MST. Any incomplete or incorrect applications may be disqualified. Interviews will be conducted throughout Block 6, and a decision will be made at the end of Block 6. Please note that the current Rag Editor may be present during interviews.

Please note that declared FGS majors and minors will be given priority.
