I need a social media manager to run the Twitter and Facebook accounts for a small feminist press. The mission of the press is to publish socially engaged literature with an emphasis on the voices of people of color. Each account, Twitter and Facebook, should get one post per day.
The other piece of this is to post engaging content to our blog twice each month. I get submissions from people sometimes for the blog, which you can use if the content is quality. In the past, I've published solicited essays by accomplished writers exclusively, but it's gotten increasingly difficult to solicit and/or curate quality essays without paying people. So my new vision for the blog is to have short, interesting posts twice each month about issues relevant to the press such as socially engaged fiction, diversity in publishing, diversity (or lack thereof) in voices that reach a national stage, etc.
So I will need a writer for this role who knows social media, has a good mind for industry relevant news, and has a passion for this press.
My initial budget for the position is $100/month. If I find a star who fits well with our mission and culture, there is room for you to become a partner and share in a portion of the annual profits of the press as well.
We are a small press with a backlist of 52 titles that draw a moderate revenue. You will play a role in growing that through your success in engaging and mobilizing a wider audience aligned with our new mission.
