General discussion about Avlis

Moderators: Nighthawk4, Dungeon Masters


PostAuthor: The Avlissian » Thu Mar 17, 2016 9:29 pm


The Avlissian, a bi-weekly newsletter based in Mikona with a circulation of over 1100 loyal readers, is hiring a Managing Editor.

The Managing Editor will report to the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Seka. Duties will include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Selecting and interviewing fascinating subjects
  • Writing and editing compelling news articles
  • Soliciting promising manuscripts from the playerbase
  • Generating story ideas
  • Overseeing newsletter layout
  • Proposing seasonal events and engaging contests
  • Managing the slush pile
  • Hiring freelance writers, interviewers, underlings, peons, and interns to do the stuff s/he doesn't like doing
  • Keeping an ‘ear to the cobblestone’ (i.e., staying on top of player activity, DM activity, and CCC development)
  • Enforcing the policies set by the Editor-in-Chief
  • Backstabbing the Editor-in-Chief at some point in the future and taking her job

The winning candidate will have a proven track record demonstrating that s/he:

  • is capable of writing in complete sentences, occasionally even using correct grammar
  • possesses a formidable sense of humor
  • is creative, thrives in a chaotic environment, and enjoys ‘shaking things up’
  • either is or intends to be an active community participant
  • does not run away screaming at the sight of a tracking spreadsheet
Compensation will include:

  • Travel to strange and exotic lands
  • 3-hour “working lunches” at the Moon Tree
  • Bribes taken from people desperate to be interviewed
  • Lording your position over less powerful people
  • Knowing everything there is to know
  • Being super-popular and fabulous
  • Working closely with a beautiful, intelligent, scintillating Valokian and doing her bidding

Applications will be accepted for the next week and may be delivered via courier to the Department of Human and Non-Human Resources at the Avlissian office complex in Mikona. (PM this account)

We'd love to be able to publish this bi-weekly but it's not going to be possible without your help!
