Editor/Writer/Special Sections Genius/Web Wizard

Description:

Anton Community Newspapers, a chain of 17 weeklies in Nassau County, New York, seeks a Special Sections Editor to take topics ranging from Banking and Finance to Holiday Gifts and develop creative approaches that will engage readers and impress advertisers. While a member of the newsroom's editorial team, in this position you will work closely with the Advertising Department to write and edit,as well as gather material and fully produce each section (everything but page design and production). Photography skills are a big plus. We publish more than 50 Special Sections each year out of our Mineola, New York, headquarters, where you will be based.

In addition, you will work with our web team in reporting, editing and posting news stories on our websites on a daily basis. You must have the ability to post material quickly, and come up with and execute great ideas all by yourself.

Obviously, organizational skills, a can-do attitude, and the ability to shift gears quickly and smoothly are required.

There is potential to assume the role of editor of  a community newspaper. But first, you must prove yourself in these very important roles.

A minimum of 3 years of real experience writing tight, well-reported articles ranging from news to features is required. You must be willing to report--actually get facts and quotes. If you are afraid of the phone, don't waste your time.

We would like to see your 3 best pieces, along with your salary requirements. Try-out assignments will be required.
