We are an ambitious young journal based in New York City, with a growing community of engaged readers who support our mission. Working with Apogee brings opportunities for networking with nonprofits, literary journals, writers, and artists in New York City and beyond, and the chance to be a part of a supportive and diverse team of writers and editors who are passionate about art and activism.

Responsibilities include:

  • Proofreading blog content for Perigee and posting it to WordPress;
  • Mailing copies of Apogee to contributors, reviewers, and subscribers;
  • Establishing connections with bookstores in NYC to sell Apogee;
  • Tracking inventory of print issues;
  • Building opportunities for reviews and interviews by connecting with like-minded organizations and individuals over e-mail;
  • Copyediting/proofreading content for print issues.

Qualifications:

  • Experience managing social media campaigns for events, programs, or organizations;
  • Experience event planning (coordinating with venues, ordering catering, selling tickets, advertising);
  • Familiarity with Google Docs and Dropbox;
  • Basic knowledge of WordPress;
  • Strong communication skills;
  • Proofreading/editing skills;
  • Self-starter, with demonstrated experience spearheading projects.
