Looking for a Scots n' Water Assistant Editor

Cover

Do you:

  • Love reading, language and/or writing
  • Dream of learning to edit a publication
  • Have good organizing skills
  • Yearn to contribute some volunteer time to FSSA

Then perhaps you’d like to apply to be the assistant editor for SnW magazine!

We are looking for an assistant editor for Scots N Water. The person in this one-year position would work side by side with the current editor to organize and proof the magazine and to learn the details that go into producing this magazine six times per year.  The expectation is that, if all parties (including the Board) are agreeable, the assistant editor would take over as editor within one year. It is also helpful if this person travels to at least some regattas, including national ones, as a way to meet sailors and hear about possible stories.

If you are interested, please contact the current editor, Deb Aronson.

Please note on the tech shirts the front chest will show the 60th 'Sail' logo and not the FSSA logo shown on the website at the time of this posting. The tech shirt is a custom screen printing job and these types of jobs are done in large batches. All tech shirts will be shipped after they are printed together in mid to late April. You can also embroider products with either of the three logos shows and those will be processed and shipped individually as the orders come in.
