Apogee Journal Seeks Designer
Founded three years ago by grad students in Columbia’s MFA program in Creative Writing, Apogee is a journal focused on publishing art and literature that engage with issues of identity politics: race, gender, sexuality, class, and hyphenated identities. Our goal is to publish exciting work that interrogates the status quo, providing a platform for unheard voices, including emerging writers of color.
We currently release one online and one print journal per year and have produced four issues to date. We have a solid and growing presence on social media and are sold in bookstores around New York City. We also host regular events and are fast building a community of engaged readers and artists who support our mission.
The position currently encompasses web and print, but we’re considering dividing it into webmaster and print designer roles. Ideally, we’ll work with the right candidate to find a manageable and satisfying amount of work. Compensation is $1000 for the year which includes 2 issues, plus work on the website. As the journal is a non-profit, whomever takes this on can also write off the time spent working on your taxes, which can add up and have a good impact at the end of the year. Most important is the opportunity for someone passionate to join an exciting and growing community of like-minded artists.
