Could you be our next newsletter editor?

Coordination / Projects volunteer needed for Reading Cycle Campaign in RG1

The Reading Cycle Campaign is recruiting for a new newsletter content editor!

rccapril2016
Our newsletter comes out four times a year on both paper and via email.  The role requires about 10 hours work for each newsletter, spread over a month.

As editor you would be responsible for:

  • keeping to deadlines and sourcing sufficient articles, including updates from the committee, articles from the membership, and collecting interesting snippets from other news sources
  • copy editing of the articles (but our proof reader double checks everything)
  • keeping in touch with the designer and distributor to arrange printing and delivery
  • organising artwork for adverts

 

 

 

 

Most of the communication happens through email, but it would be appreciated if you can come to the monthly meeting of the RCC.
