JOIN OUR TEAM!
Our team consists of five managing editors, who lead editorial functions, design, communications, and growth. Additionally, we have five contributing editors who work in the areas of writing, design, research, and regularly perform substantive and copy-editing on selected submissions from our open calls for articles. We are looking to expand our team to include additional contributing editors and an online designer. The Site Magazine is funded under the Canada Council for the Arts’ literary program. All team members contribute on a voluntary basis, benefitting personally and professionally from our activities, extensive network, and professional affiliations.
If you are interested in being a part of the -SITE team we look forward to hearing from you. Please review the descriptions below and send in your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to grow our team to include three additional contributing editors. Our contributing editors ensure high-quality writing, thoughtful contributions, and consistent standards. They work on assignment, reviewing two to five articles per volume, depending on their availability. The editing process happens over a six-week period each Spring and Fall. Our editors are strong writers and researchers from all disciplines, but have a keen interest in topics relating to the built environment. As a contributing editor your research and interests can contribute to shaping the themes of forthcoming issues, crafting calls for articles, and developing new programming.

You will not be limited in the ways your can contribute to the organization; we are eager to support your interests.
