The Red Pepper Editorial Collective (EC) is responsible for commissioning and editing content for our quarterly print magazine and website. Previously, editors have worked in a volunteer capacity. As of 2020, each quarterly cycle will be managed by up to eight EC members, all of whom will receive a solidarity stipend for their work.
We are looking for people to join our team, and welcome expressions of interest from established, new, or emerging voices in journalism who share our principles and values.
EC Member Core Responsibilities:
Additional occasional responsibilities include:
Experience: Our ethos is that each editor contributes a different skill-set to the collective, with responsibilities shared according to individuals’ strengths. All new members will be provided with training and will be partnered with an existing editor as a mentor for at least their first quarterly cycle. Prior experience in journalism (commissioning, writing, editing, transcribing) and project management, and familiarity with relevant software (Google Drive, WordPress, design, audio/video editing platforms) are all welcome, but none are essential.
Time Commitment: Approx. 12 – 24 hrs per month / 6 – 12 days per quarter (busier during print production weeks).
Pay: Stipend of at least £500 per quarter (amount may rise depending on number of active editors / successful fundraising).
Process: If you are interested in joining the EC, please send a statement of interest (250 words max.) along with any links / documents that showcase your work as a writer or editor (3 pieces max. unpublished work accepted) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please get in touch by January 7, 2020 to guarantee consideration.
