Could you be the next editor of our Magazine?
Posted on November 13, 2018
With the approaching departure of our Magazine Editor we are looking for
someone to take on the role.
The William Morris Society Magazine is published three times a year and is
the Society’s most comprehensive method of communicating with our
membership. It includes features on Morris and his immediate and wider
circles, and covers a range of relevant news including updates on the
Society’s activities and Morris-related events.
This is an exciting opportunity to bring fresh ideas to the Magazine. We are
looking for someone with a desire to communicate all aspects of Morris’s life
and works, who can both commission articles and manage submissions from
our members. This person should have editorial experience, ideally in
illustrated publications, an excellent grasp of written English, complete
familiarity with Microsoft Word, some familiarity with Photoshop and the ability
to liaise with the designer over page layouts. Experience of picture research
will be an advantage.
The editorship is an unpaid post but travel and subsistence costs to attend
committee meetings and other out-of-pocket expenses are reimbursed.
Our hope is that the role will be filled by someone who can continue to inspire
the wide appreciation of Morris’s multifaceted career, and foster fellowship
between Society members.
We would want to have someone in place following the publication in
February of the Spring 2019 issue.
