Do you have a creative eye and editorial expertise and want to be part of creating award-winning products in one of the best areas of the South? Come to Lake Martin and join our team of creative journalists at Tallapoosa Publishers Inc. which is locally owned and operated.

Our newsroom is looking for a Design Editor who can paginate TPI’s four newspaper publications and special sections periodically. In addition to design and pagination, you will also copy edit, plan content and work alongside the managing editor handling day-to-day editorial duties. 

A perfect candidate should have exceptional skills in InDesign and Photoshop. Experience with TownNews/Blox CMS software is a huge plus. Additionally, you should have some editorial expertise and be familiar with news. 

Our design editor will be given artistic freedom and will be trusted to create high-quality, high-impact work in news, sports, features and more. We want someone with a deep understanding of compelling, functional page design and typography. You should be familiar with current AP Style, headline writing, news and feature writing, grammar and punctuation. 

We pride ourselves on our in-house design and want someone who can help us continue our award-winning style. Design is not something that is a second thought for our newspapers; it’s an integral part just like the content within our newspapers.

You'll work in our office in Alexander City, Alabama, which is home to one of the largest recreational lakes in the South. Awarded Alabama Press Association's highest editorial award of General Excellence for two years in a row now, we strive for excellence in everything we do and will settle for no less than a candidate who has the same mindset. 

Interested? Please send your resume, cover letter and PDFs of your best recent work to managing editor Santana Wood at
