Flagship Publishing is hiring a full-time Magazine Staff Writer in Windsor, Colorado, to help with the creation of three bimonthly statewide magazines: Colorado Life, Utah Life and Nebraska Life. Ideal candidates will have a portfolio of recent magazine or newspaper writing experience and will have a proven record of producing clean, entertaining copy in a fast-paced environment.
Flagship Publishing produces keepsake print magazines for loyal and passionate subscribers who live in our states. We don't write current-event news stories, blogs, tips, listicles or how-to articles. Instead, we publish entertaining and meaningful stories about people, communities, travel, history, food and nature in our states. We use lively, descriptive writing with anecdotes and colorful characters in a "narrative storytelling" style of journalism. We aim for every story to entertain our readers and help them understand life in their favorite state.
Applicants should supply a portfolio that shows a breadth of knowledge and an innate curiosity for the world around them. Include at least three well-developed story pitches in the categories of travel, personality profile and history for one or all of our states in your application.
Qualifications & Skills
The full-time position provides company-sponsored retirement, vacation, holidays, paid sick time, maternity leave and continuing education. There is opportunity for advancement – in pay and responsibilities – at our growing company, including promotion to assistant editor or editor positions for those who excel.
