We as an organisation have been undertaking a series of conversations with our members about how we support People of Colour who use Wharf Chambers and beyond. The contributions of individuals and groups such as Wharf Members Against Racism have shown the need for the anti-racism work led by people who experience racism needs to be collated and distributed, so we are commissioning a zine and require an editor. The hope is that by providing a platform and funds People of Colour may be able to utilise these resources.
We as an organisation do not wish to influence the editing process and accept that submissions and printed contributions may be highly critical of Wharf Chambers as an organisation due to our ongoing institutional failures towards PoC and abuse survivors*
The editor will be responsible for finding suitable contributions, editing, layout, and administration of the project.
You must identify as a Person of Colour and/or BAME to apply for this role.**
You may have paid or unpaid experience of;
- editing and blogging
- photography and art
This is a freelance role, with a fee of £200 for all work undertaken. There are additional funds allocated for the printing and contributor fees.
To apply or for an informal chat about this position, please send a cover letter and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date is 6th August at 10am.
