The Associate Editor at The California Sunday Magazine will be responsible for finding new writers, gathering and generating story ideas, editing, writing sometimes, and contributing to a variety of projects. We're interested in vivid characters, surprising plots, hidden worlds, and writerly quests, set in California, the West, Asia, and Latin America.

Candidates should have experience writing or editing stories for a good sized audience, but this does not have to mean formal magazine experience. We are also interested in candidates who have written a stylish blog or contributed to a smart indie web outlet.

We're especially interested in candidates who know culture, arts, entertainment, or technology. But editors won’t be assigned to narrow beats or verticals. We’re looking for horizontal types. If, in addition, you're thoughtful about photography, sound, film, code, live performance, or storytelling experiments, let us know.

You should have lots of ideas, and believe this is a great time to be making media.
