Job Posting: Art columnist wanted

Art columnist wanted

As you may or may not know, Spiral Nature Magazine is run by a tiny handful of dedicated volunteers. Right now we have three staff writers and five editors, in addition to some 50-odd regular contributors who write articles and reviews for the magazine.

Our contributors are all freelance, and largely stick to their own schedule, but we’d like to start a new art column, published twice a month, with an extra article made available for members.

Interested?

Our new art columnist will contribute a column that can range in topics and themes, from art biographical or historical information, art book recommendations, interviews with artists and illustrators, art how-tos, cover exhibitions, shows, and whatever takes your fancy, though it should be somehow be tied-in to the occultnik scene. Ability to weave in pop occultural references a huge plus. Dazzle us with your unique take on art in this scene, and how you want to share it with our readers.

Duties will include:

  • Write about an art-inspired topic twice a month
  • Write a monthly article of… something that will be made available to members (suggestions welcome!)
  • Can be batched monthly for easier writing (and easier to edit for our editorial team)
  • Make recommendations to the editor on innovative ways to cover art and related topics
  • Use your specialist knowledge to contribute ideas

What I’m looking for in an art columnist:

  • Familiarity with the occultnik art scene (Pagan, Thelemic, ceremonial, etc.)
  • Familiarity with occulture
  • Sense of humour
  • Strong writer
  • Ability to work independently
  • Attention to detail
  • Knowledge of Spiral Nature, what we publish, and our audience
  • Experience with WordPress a plus
  • Moderate HTML skills
  • Moderate social media skills (TwitterFacebookTumblrPinterest, Google+, LinkedIn)

This position can be entirely remote, but if you’re in Toronto, there may be opportunity for in-person planning sessions, drinks, and noms.

What you get out of it:

  • $15 per article
  • 125 x 125 px sidebar ad (a $30 value)
  • Your name on the masthead
  • Experience working the world’s most awesome occulture magazine
  • Other perks as they arise?

Interested?

Send me an email outlining your experience, social media profiles, blog, and anything else you feel is relevant. I don’t need to see a resume.

Not interested, but know someone who might be? Please share this job posting with them and anyone else in your network. Thanks!

Application deadline: 31 August 2018
