Position Title: Editorial Board Member

Description: Editorial Board Members do not necessarily have an area of expertise, but are generalists that can help contribute, curate, and copy edit content so we have regular postings to The Socialist. Editorial Board Members are expected to:

  • Attend at least nine monthly meetings per year. During the monthly meetings, the Editorial Board reviews published and in-progress webzine content; discusses new content ideas; plan for the magazine (four issues per calendar year); and have an open discussion about other The Socialist-related matters

  • Promote The Socialist as much as possible and act as a representative of it to both Party members and the general public

  • Stay on top of current events and topics that can be turned into engaging content that promotes the Party's platform and principles, provides analysis from a socialist perspective and/or inspires thought and dialogue

  • Copyedit content

  • Curate content that relates to the party's platform (not just in one specific area, like an AE)
