On January 7, 2020, we opened up 9 new positions within The Seventh Wave. Below are the remaining positions available. We hope you’ll consider joining our team and taking this next big step with us.
If you’ve been with us for a while, then you know this has been a long time coming for us. Almost five years in the making now, our organization has grown with each issue we’ve published. It’s wild to think that when we first began in 2015, we were a digital magazine based in Brooklyn. Now, we’re a bicoastal literary arts non-profit with operations on both coasts, and offer two residencies each year (one on Bainbridge Island, WA, and the other in Rhinebeck, NY). And we’ve been blessed to have now worked with 180+ writers, artists, and creatives from around the world. We want to give a special deep thanks to our digital community of artists & activists for believing in us, and for their willingness to engage with our issues with such truth, power, and voice.
Below is a list of each open position. You can also see a summary of the roles and responsibilities on the right. To see the full details for each position, as well as how to apply, click on the position. These positions will remain open until they are filled.
Contributing Editor(s) (4): one issue, half year, volunteer, past contributors only. We are looking to bring on 4 Contributing Editors to join the Editorial Team. You will be assigned 3-4 pieces. On each piece you edit, you will be working with a Managing Editor, who will be responsible for the overall progress and publication of the piece. The Managing Editor will be the one communicating back and forth with the contributor, but you will be integral to the evolution and final form of each piece you work on. We have a Two-Editor Rule at The Seventh Wave, to ensure that every piece receives the attention it deserves. This position is only open to past TSW contributors. To see more details, click here.
Newsletter Coordinator (1): one issue, half year, volunteer. If our magazine were an airport, the Newsletter Coordinator would be the air traffic control, because you are the one who sends our work out into the world, and tries to make a turbulent experience enjoyable. What we are putting out there in the world is not always what the world wants to immediately read or experience. And so the role of our weekly newsletters, in a way, is to package our pieces into a thing that someone wants to digest. It is a twenty-second chance to make a case for a voice we believe it. That responsibility — to suspend someone’s disbelief, and invite interaction — we do not take lightly. Which is why we want this to be its own role. Because you are the one carrying the torch for us, by creating 14-18 newsletters over the course of six months. To see more details, click here.
