The Porch Press is the only publication dedicated to covering the neighborhoods of Grant park, East Atlanta and SAND. As part of our neighborhood focus, we rely on our neighborhood editors and calendar editor to bring our readers information on recent and upcoming events.
We are currently in need of a Grant Park editor and and an editor for the calendar page. The Grant Park Editor is a volunteer position that involves gathering or writing stories on topics related to the neighborhood. This can include neighborhood history, new businesses opening in the area, updates or announcements related to building projects, zoning issues, events or announcements from the schools in the neighborhood, or information on upcoming events. The Calendar Editor gathers dates, times and locations for upcoming events in the neighborhoods of Neighborhood Planning Unit – W Which includes the three neighborhoods listed above. The Neighborhood Editors provide much of the information but some is gathered from regular sources.
Any writing or editing experience is helpful, although we mainly are lookm’g for someone who is reliable and has knowledge of the area and an interest in the com- munity. Local organizations as well as members of the public are welcome to submit articles to’ the neighborhood editors, and information about events for the calendar. Those Editors in turn send them to the Coordinating Editor in advance of each month’s prooﬁng session. If interested in either position, please contact Lyn Hillman, the Coordinating Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
