From the desk of Tania of Momentum Magazine:
New in 2009, Momentum Magazine is pleased to introduce its Toronto edition - a special 16-page section devoted entirely to Toronto news, issues and local events. This is your chance to get involved! Momentum is looking for a Guest Editor.
Our Guest Editor is someone who lives in Toronto, rides a bike for transportation, is a great communicator, recruiter, and editor. Ideally you have a career path in editing and publishing but this is not mandatory. You will be responsible for rallying a core team of contributors and will take on the job of encouraging and nagging your team to meet their deadline.
The project will run from November 15th - December 15th. There is an honorarium for this project, and there will also be a small editorial budget to pay writers and photographers honorariums. If you love people, are highly self-motivated organized, and want to spread the word about Toronto's bike culture, this is the project for you!
Typical Momentum stories focus on people who are dedicated to expanding the world of cycling culture: advocates, artists, activists, businesses that recognize and welcome cyclists, or just groups of people who like to go for a breakfast ride. We favour future focused writing, as explained in our contributors guidelines on the web site:
We will choose a Toronto guest editor by Nov. 10. Please submit your responses, ideas, and samples of your writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please indicate whether you are interested in being a Guest Editor or if you are interested in being a Contributor in the subject line.
We look forward to spreading the word about bike culture throughout Toronto!
