PDD Calendar Editor
Perfect Duluth Day is seeking an entertainment writer to serve as editor of its online events calendar. The primary duties of the position are to gather and organize information about Duluth-area events and present it clearly and succinctly.
This is a part-time, independent contractor position with a flexible schedule. The PDD Calendar editor will be expected to work from home, approximately 10 hours per week, and also meet weekly to collaborate with interns and other calendar support staff.
The ideal candidate will have as many of the following qualities as possible, though none are a requisite:
- A degree in English, journalism or communications
- Experience in entertainment reporting
- An outgoing personality and a passion for arts and entertainment (which in this case includes sports, politics and other activities)
- Knowledge of the WordPress publishing platform
Fundamental grammar skills and a strong work ethic are critical; the rest can be learned on the job.
Basically, we are looking for someone who either has a lot of knowledge about (and enthusiasm for) Duluth events, or someone who just writes really well. If we can find a person with both qualities, that would be a bonus.
To apply, send a résumé to Paul Lundgren — paul @ perfectduluthday.com. Deadline for applying is Monday, Oct. 31.
