Managing Editor, Off Assignment
Off Assignment is seeking a paid, part-time Managing Editor, preferably based in New York City (but remote work is possible). The Managing Editor will be responsible for soliciting submissions to our “Letter to a Stranger” series and other columns, liaising with contributors, overseeing the organization’s basic operations, applying for several grants, bookkeeping, and publicizing our content on social media.
Off Assignment was founded as a grassroots series of literary salons in 2013 and grew into a nonprofit, online magazine in 2016 (full backstory here). Our ideal candidate for Managing Editor is self-motivated, highly organized, creative, passionate about OA’s content and mission, undaunted by administrative tasks, and eager to help us foster an increasingly diverse community of contributors. 2-3 years of professional writing or editing experience is preferred, as well as familiarity with Squarespace. Experience in nonprofit management, fundraising, and/or grant-writing is a major plus.
The position is approximately 15 hours per week and comes with a modest stipend of $600/month (subject to increase based on fundraising), or $7,200 per year. We’re asking for a minimum 1-year commitment.
A cover letter detailing 1) your particular interest in this position; 2) the experience that equips you for it; 3) your current work/life situation and how this OA position would be negotiated with other jobs and responsibilities.
A current CV
Application deadline is Feb 10, 2020.

I want to share my most recent (dark & creepy) publication. It’s called “December, 1993” and it’s published (online and print) in Witness Magazine.
I hope everyone’s enjoying the holidays! 💫
Hey everyone! I just wanted to share my latest publication. Here’s my flash prose “Pinned Butterflies” in Lunch Ticket Magazine with Antioch University located in Los Angeles. Essentially, this story is about an abusive relationship, and, how the survivor is treated as an object without ever having her humanity acknowledged.
