Eugene Weekly — an award-winning alternative newspaper in one of the most livable and naturally beautiful places in the nation — seeks a 30 hour-per-week calendar editor with a reporter’s sensibility to edit EW’s “What’s Happening” calendar, which fills Lane County in on the area’s vibrant arts, music, political, entertainment and everything-in-between scene. We’re a feisty office with a fierce dedication to covering community issues with an alternative flare.
EW is looking for a person who can handle data entry (the bulk of the job) but is looking to move up to a career in news reporting or thoughtful (but fun) arts and music criticism with a little magazine-style narrative thrown in. The calendar editor should be excited to highlight both highbrow and grassroots events in the community.
The ideal candidate will be highly organized, detail-oriented, determined and versatile as well as have infinite amounts of patience. Copyediting skills a plus. Must not be married to the Oxford comma. The position starts as soon as it is filled.
This opportunity comes with a salary, excellent non-financial perks (mainly free food) and a possibility to move on to a writing position.
Send resume, cover letter and clips to firstname.lastname@example.org as an MS word or a .pdf attachment (web links are also accepted) or mail to 1251 Lincoln St., Eugene 97401. EW is an equal opportunity employer.
