Do you want to run a Newspaper?

The Corktown News is looking for a new Editor. This is your chance to run a newspaper!

The Corktown News is the Corktown Residents & Business Association’s seasonal newspaper highlighting the latest news, events, and stories from the community. It is published three times each year and distributed to all homes and businesses within the Corktown area via Canada Post. Past issues can be viewed at http://corktown.ca/the-corktowner/

The Corktown News is written and produced by local residents and business volunteers. We need an Editor to get the paper out on time, working with writers to get articles in, edited, and ready for the production process.

Like all CRBA roles, this is a volunteer, unpaid position that offers huge amounts of community value and personal satisfaction. This role will entail several hours of work about 4-6 weeks before each publication date and minimal work between issues.

If you are interested or want to learn more, please send an email with your contact information, your connection to Corktown, and why you’d like to take on this role to editor@corktown.ca. All candidates will be contacted for an interview.

Deadline: April 9, 2017
