The Scavenger is looking for new associate editors

The Scavenger is a monthly online magazine/portal for alternative, progressive news, features and commentary that you’re unlikely to find in mainstream media.

www.thescavenger.net

It features a mix of original articles, republished blog posts and author extracts.

The first issue went live in November and since then stories have been referenced by Rupert Murdoch’s News Limited, as well as countless blogs and websites internationally and regularly come up on Google News.

The editor-in-chief Katrina Fox is based in Australia, with readers, associate editors and contributors coming from across the globe. The Scavenger is very much international in focus with the aim of connecting communities by the things that affect us all. It has a strong social justice ethos.

Categories are:

  • Feminism & pop culture
  • Media & technology
  • Gay, lesbian, bisexual, intersex sex and/or gender diverse, queer
  • Social justice (people, animals, environment)
  • Health
  • Arts
  • Book, DVD and music reviews

Vacancies for associate editors

We’re looking for some new associate editors to come on board. There’s already a fantastic team of associate editors who have been with the project since the beginning but, due to time constraints, some have had to move on.

Requirements for associate editors’ roles:

  • Write at least one original article per month (feature, interview or opinion piece).
  • Source at least one article (original or republished) per month from other writers.
  • Submit/share articles (yours and others) to social media sites including Twitter & Facebook
  • Submit articles to Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon

Time commitment: Approximately 10-12 hours a month or 3 hours a week.

The Scavenger is – like many online publishing initiatives – is a non-profit project in which all positions are voluntary.

Please do not apply unless you can commit the time to carry out the above on an ongoing basis.

How to apply

Please take a good look at the site to get a feel for the types of articles we run, and read the ‘about’ section if you’re not familiar with The Scavenger.

If you like what you see, want to be involved, and can commit the time to write and source articles as outlined above, please email:

Katrina Fox, editor-in-chief at editor@thescavenger.net

Please include a brief bio of who you are, your interests, writing/publishing experience including any links, and which category or categories you feel you would most likely be willing and able to contribute to.

Please feel free to forward this callout to anyone you think may be interested. Associate editors can be based anywhere in the world.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
