Wanted: associate editor

editorBy Laura Hunter, 26’s editor.

I joined the newsletter team as an associate editor nearly four years ago. I was looking to stretch my writing and editing skills and thought joining the team would be the perfect way to do so. I was right. I’ve had the chance to interview some incredible writers, reviewed fantastic events and I’ve met and become friends with a wonderful bunch of 26ers. Four years on, editing the newsletter is still one of my favourite things to do.

The team includes Elena Bowes and myself and we’re on the lookout for a  26er to join the team as an associate editor.

So, what’s involved? Every other month, you’d be editing the newsletter – writing and interviewing, as well as editing and shaping contributions. You won’t be doing it on your own though. I’ll be there to help.

You’ll be helping us to share a love of words, in business and in life. And adding a sprinkle of 26 magic dust to your CV in the process. You’ll also get the inside news on upcoming 26 projects and events.

If you’re interested, please email me with details of your relevant experience and 26 words on ‘why I’d like to be associate editor’ by 21 October. Laura_hunter38@hotmail.com
