The Co-op Voice is putting out this call to interest potential Voice editors. Please contact us at editors AT coopvoice.com to learn more.
What do Co-op Voice Editors Do?
Voice editors facilitate the workflow of the Co-op Voice team, enabling the group to cooperate with efficiency and harmony to publish our newsletter for the Co-op community. On the Voice team, everyone’s voice is welcome, and everyone’s time, skills and enthusiasm are appreciated and honored. (The Co-op Voice team is a wonderful bunch of member-owners…if we say so ourselves!)
Among other duties, the Co-op Voice editors:
- Make decisions as to Voice policy and content
- Conduct two monthly Co-op Voice team meetings
- Consult with Co-op Management about particular articles, as needed
- Communicate with team members between meetings
- Follow leads for stories and correspond with potential writers
- Write a monthly Voice editorial
Ideally, editors will take turns being “Lead Editor” each month, which involves working closely with the other editors, copy-editors and web-folks to publish that month’s issue.
