Editorial Assistant 2


Down East magazine is seeking an editorial assistant to join its team. This is a full-time, entry-level position that provides broad experience in magazine work and comes with opportunities for long-term growth and advancement within the company.

Editorial responsibilities include writing short department pieces and front matter, generating story ideas, research and fact-checking, and, from time to time, contributing to feature packages and special projects. The job also involves some writing for newsletters and custom publications, plus a modicum of administrative work, namely reading and responding to correspondence and submissions.

Most of the Down East editorial and creative team primarily works remotely, but this position requires residency in Maine, the ability to travel around the state on assignment, and occasional in-person attendance at the magazine’s headquarters, in Rockport, as well as at off-site meetings.


Necessary qualifications:

– proven ability in writing and researching

– a passion for learning about Maine’s people, places, culture, and social and natural history

– strong organizational skills

– a downright pathological attention to detail and adherence to style guidelines


Preferred qualifications:

– a degree in journalism or a related field

– prior experience in print media


This is a salaried position and includes benefits such as health and dental insurance, paid time off, paid family and medical leave, and a 401(k) plan. Down East Enterprise is an equal-opportunity employer committed to inclusivity and nondiscrimination. Applicants should write a short letter of interest to editor in chief Will Grunewald at [email protected] and include a résumé with three references and three writing samples, each of no more than 1,000 words, preferably published. No phone calls, please.
