HELP WANTED…SPW is seeking a creative, energetic and organized feminist with strong writing skills to serve as Editor of the Society for the Psychology of Women’s newsletter, “The Feminist Psychologist.” The Feminist Psychologist is one of two official publications of the Society for the Psychology of Women (SPW), APA Division 35. TFP Newsletter is published four times per year (quarterly). A hard copy and an electronic version of the newsletter are currently available to paid members of SPW. The newsletter routinely reaches over 3000 readers immediately upon publication online and in hardcopy approximately six to eight weeks after that.

The Editor of the newsletter must have strong writing and organizational skills and is responsible for pre- and post-production processes including announcing upcoming deadlines, reviewing and proofing submitted copy, and coordinating Editorial Board assignments. Other duties include copy design, layout and final submission for production in coordination with APA Staff. As the official newsletter of the Society for Psychology of Women, the Editor should be skilled at handling editorial disputes and negotiating organizational politics. The Editor is also responsible for managing the budget for the newsletter. The position requires the ability to work under tight deadlines in order to insure that up-to-date and relevant materials are included in the publication. The Editor must have access to, and be proficient in, the use of Microsoft Office Publisher (or other online publishing software), Microsoft Word, and PDF programs such as Adobe.
The Feminist Psychologist newsletter editor is a member of the SPW Publication Committee. There is a small stipend/honorarium associated with the production of each issue of the publication.
