by Darla Tewell | 2008

Do you love Chesapeake? Are you a diplomatic wordsmith with good organizational skills and a commitment to advocacy on behalf of our habitat? If you have experience as an editor and an interest in environmental advocacy, here’s an opportunity that may grab your attention: my job.

If you have experience as an editor and an interest in environmental advocacy, here’s an opportunity that may grab your attention: my job. Hi. My name is Darla and I have been the managing editor of Chesapeake for seven years. I have decided to move on to some of the other activities that the chapter offers, so the managing editorship is open.

            For a diplomatic wordsmith with good organizational skills and a commitment to advocacy on behalf of our habitat, this is a great position.         

About four times a year, you’ll lead a team of editors that rises to every challenge. And you’ll enjoy working with our chapter leaders and other members whose articles, essays, and notices fill our pages each quarter. You’ll review and circulate the articles that are submitted for publication, develop story ideas, and assign the articles to our wonderful volunteer editors, who work with the authors to get the articles ready for publication. Then you’ll determine the content of each issue of the newsletter, and work with the page designer who’ll put the newsletter together for printing. And yes, you can do this work from home. All of it.

            I’ll give you my files, the best advice my experience can provide, and my commitment to help you make a smooth transition into the job.

            Interested? Have questions that might help you get interested? Contact me at editorch@maryland.sierraclub.org.

            I know the right person is out there. Let’s talk soon.
