Charleston magazine, the flagship publication of Gulfstream Communications in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, is looking for a managing editor to join its award-winning staff. Working closely with the editor-in-chief, this editor will ensure that the monthly magazine goes out on time and within budget, enforcing internal deadlines, maintaining the production schedule, and overseeing freelance fees.  

She or he will be heavily involved in the creative process, contributing ideas, writing and editing skills, and problem-solving abilities to the production of the entire magazine in print and digital platforms. In addition, this editor will produce the front-of-book Channel Markers section, which touches on most every aspect of life in our vibrant city: art, culture, history, business, events, charitable endeavors, and more. She or he will also work with the magazine’s style editor to produce the Style File section.

Our ideal candidate will have a deep interest in and ongoing engagement with life in Charleston and the broader Lowcountry region, as well as the ability to translate this into appealing, insightful articles. Publishing experience—and the ability to manage an editorial team—is a must.

Requirements include:

Bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications, or a relevant field

5 or more years experience in publishing, preferably with at least a year’s experience in an editorial oversight role

Demonstrated experience with assigning, writing, and editing stories

Strong leadership abilities and experience in managing a staff

Top-notch organizational skills
