This is a part-time remote freelance position starting from September 2019.
Selvedge is a magazine that promotes textiles and textile makers from around the world. Now in its 16th year, we publish six issues a year as well as running workshops, fairs, tours and talks.
Our website content is hugely important; fostering a sense of community with our readers, and reflecting the interests and tone of the print magazine. We produce a 300-word blog post each day. These are reactive in that rather than researching topics we respond to press releases that find their way to us. Each of the editors we have had work on the blog has put their own spin on the content and we are open to this. The seven blog posts each week form our newsletter. In addition, we have external and internal advertisements. We work hard to make sure the blog posts work as a collection in terms of images or theme. In addition to being responsible for the blog posts and newsletter, the post includes managing our reader competitions. These are taken from the magazine, put onto the website and covered in a blog post, and the winners are contacted at the end of each issue run.
The Selvedge team works remotely. This position is for the equivalent of a day a week, and while the hours can be spread across a number of days, we would like the blog manager to be able to attend our weekly online team meeting at 9am on Thursdays.
