MyJewishLearning.com is proud to announce the creation of its Editorial Fellowship program. The inaugural two-year fellowship will begin in September 2008, concluding in August 2010.
The fellowship is open to recent college graduates interested in writing, editing, Jewish life, and new media.
MyJewishLearning.com, a transdenominational source of Jewish information, is currently undergoing a major site redesign, ramping up technological capacities and integrating new features, including video and an Ask-the-Expert function.
The Editorial Fellow will work closely with the siteâ€™s senior editors to shape MyJewishLearning.comâ€™s editorial vision, solicit material from freelance writers, write and edit articles, and contribute daily to our popular blog Mixed Multitudes.
The Editorial Fellowship also includes significant professional development opportunities, including one free class each year at the Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning, a book allowance, and monthly lunches with staff members from Jewish organizations, media outlets, and foundations, such as JTA, Jewish Funds For Justice, and the Samuel Bronfman Foundation.
Salary for the fellowship is $36,000, plus full health and dental insurance.
Qualified candidates should have strong writing and editing skills and an in-depth knowledge of Jewish history, culture, and tradition, as well as familiarity with the web and web publications.
To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and a writing sample of no more than 1500 words to Meredith Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 15.
