Are you our new deputy editor-in-chief?2 min read
Who are we?
Lossi 36 is an online media project founded in 2018 with the mandate to provide engaging, well-researched content about Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. We have since published almost 500 articles, some of which have been republished by media platforms like New Eastern Europe, Kafkadesk, and Voices on Central Asia, or selected for archivation by institutions like the Harvard College Library. As a small organization founded by students and run on a volunteer basis, we are committed to providing high-quality content while shining a spotlight on the work of students and up-and-coming professionals.
Who are we looking for?
We think that you are a well-organized and self-sufficient person with a passion for sharing stories from Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. We believe that you are knowledgeable about the political and social fabric of the above-mentioned regions and that based on this knowledge, you can assist the editor-in-chief in determining and guiding the look and feel of Lossi 36, making well-grounded decisions on what to publish. The deputy-editor in chief’s main responsibility is to organize and supervise the production of all or part of the publications according to the organization put in place. Additionally, we believe that you can lead and delegate work between a team of editors (together with the editor-in-chief).
We prefer it if you have previous experience writing and editing text and if you are from or have lived in one of our focus regions. Your level of English should be proficient – and it is a plus if you speak any of the other regional languages. Though not a must, previous experience in using WordPress, Trello, and Google Drive is welcomed.
Why join Lossi 36?
We offer you an opportunity to build and enhance your skills in editing, writing, and leading a team – as well as in small-scale media production. You will get the chance to be a part of a diverse and dynamic team engaged in raising voices from and for a region that is seldom covered by mainstream media.
- Develop and grow your skills
- A broader and international network
- A chance to implement your ideas and projects
Lossi 36 is run on a volunteer basis, thus this is an unpaid position.
