Call for editors

Written by

Application graphic

E&M is looking for new editors to join our exciting and innovative online magazine and help us redefine European journalism.

About the magazine

E&M is Europe's first online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. We believe that modern, connected Europe deserves a modern, connected form of media. With this as our guiding mission, we publish transnational writing across a broad range of topics, from politics and identity to travel and sex. We aim to "make Europe personal" and want your help in doing so.

Editing E&M

We are looking for passionate, inventive and committed editors to join our editorial board and help guide the project either as editor of one of our five magazine sections (Brain, Heart, Diaphragm, Baby and Legs) or of our blog Sixth Sense. You will:

  • Pitch, commission and edit five articles for each quarterly issue (magazine editors) or at least one article per week (blog editors) by authors from our international network
  • Contribute to decision-making in the running of E&M through editorial Skype conferences
  • Develop projects beyond the magazine such as workshops, debating events and journalism prizes

In return, you'll get to play a leading role in a magazine with 27 published issues, over 4,000 Facebook likes, 100 writers and a Charlemagne youth prize to its name. You'll meet like-minded people from across the continent, gain valuable experience in running an international publication and have the freedom to pursue your own journalistic ideas and ambitions.

What we are looking for

All of our editors voluntarily commit at least seven hours per week to the project alongside our regular work or education. We would expect the same level of commitment from you. You must be highly motivated and capable of working independently and responsibly for non-financial rewards.

To apply, you must be under 35 years of age and proficient in written and spoken English. Journalistic experience is a definite advantage. But far more importantly, you must be passionate about transnationalism and about Europe in the broadest sense: E&M is a labour of love!

How to apply

To apply to E&M as an editor, go to www.europeandme.eu/application and fill out our online application form. Don't forget to mention in your application which section you'd be most interested in editing. The deadline is 4 March 2015, and we expect to conduct interviews the following week.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at application [at] europeandme.eu

Editorial

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
