Share Magazine Vacancy


 

The SHARE Magazine Sub-Committee seeks to appoint an Assistant Editor of Share,

AA's monthly magazine in England and Wales.


The Assistant Editor receives articles weekly by email. These are edited to correct spelling, punctuation and ensure the Share "House Style" is complied with. Each article is scored on suitability for publication and then sent on to the Editor together with any comments helping the Editor decide on publication. A record of articles received needs to be kept.

Each month the printer sends a proof copy of the next magazine and the Assistant Editor needs to proof read the whole magazine within 48 hours, emailing the Editor with any amendments. An understanding of deadlines is vital for this position to guarantee Share is delivered to AA groups by the first week of the month.

The monthly production of SHARE magazine is a team effort; it is essential for the Assistant Editor to be an experienced team player with good experience of service within AA. Computer and email competence is indispensable. It would be desirable to have previous editing experience; training will be given.

This is a four-year unpaid commitment, although expenses may be claimed. Applicants must have a minimum of five years continuous sobriety at the time of application. They should be familiar with Conference-approved literature, Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, AA Comes of Age, Twelve Concepts and the AA Structure and Service Handbooks for Great Britain. The Team can hold up to four annual meetings, either in York or by conference-call, including an annual, national SHARE Liaisons Officers' meeting. The day-to-day business of the Team is carried out electronically. Closing date for applications is:  28th December 2018 Application forms are available from the AA GB  website  go to Members, Vacancies; or write/call: GSO, PO Box 1, 10 Toft Green, York YOI 7NJ Tel: 01904 644026
