Join the Team!

We are currently looking to expand the UnBound Zine team (zine team, dream team amirite?). We can always use passionate individuals to assist in editing, publishing, and public outreach. See the listed openings to read their descriptions.

 

Everyone at UnBound works on a volunteer/unpaid basis (if you're local we can pay you in cookies and pizza). However, we still expect enthusiasm, reliability, and and adherence to tight deadlines. We know humans gotta live and money makes that happen, so if you can't take on some real passion project-type work right now, don't fret, there will be more opportunities down the road. Go make that bread.

 

To be considered, please send a copy of your resume or CV along with a cover letter to the UnBound Admin Team at unboundzine@gmail.com. Please state the position you are applying for. 

Editing Assistant

Remote or Columbus, OH local

Time Commitment: 5-10hrs/week for approximately 2 weeks per publication period

Description:

As an Editing Assistant, you will work primarily with written works such as poems, short stories, and articles to make sure they are ready for publication. You will read for major and minor errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation. You will also check for flow, redundancy, readability, and overall cohesiveness. You will also attend monthly meetings via video chat (if remote) or in-person (if local).

Who We Are Looking For:

  • Personable, reliable womyn, trans, or nonbinary individuals who are invested in and passionate about the work we do here at the zine. 

  • Someone with a great grasp of the English language but who can also be sensitive to the language barriers many of our collaborators face. It can be difficult and time consuming to take the time to communicate with our collaborators to make sure we are truly comprehending what their intention and vision for their work is.

  • You don't need years of editing experience, we want the doors to be open to as many creatives as possible, but we would like someone who is able to easily and efficiently catch errors or make edits in a range of texts.

  • Someone with ideas and enthusiasm! We love new ideas for making this process run better and most of our team doesn't just stick to one task if they are passionate about other aspects of the zine as well. You always have the power and opportunity to collaborate on other zine tasks should you choose to!

  • A self-starter who is adaptable and can work to tight deadlines.

  • "Detail-oriented" or anal retentive about the little things (like our Executive Director who legitimately has OCD).

  • Someone with ideas and enthusiasm!
