Journalist / Writer Duties: The Worldview Project is seeking volunteers who have had professional journalism experience or college-level journalism coursework. Responsibilities include attending and researching events, interviewing people and writing articles suitable in tone and content for publication in our online magazine, The San Diego Participant Observer.

A lively writing style that is expository and descriptive is editorially favored over subjective and personal approaches. Applicants should understand that, depending on circumstance, subject matter and skills, the editorial process can occasionally be arduous and painstaking including the possibility of entire rewrites or pulling the plug on an article if it lacks relevance to our mission. Applicants should also understand that the publication process is highly collaborative. We are seeking writers who have a thirst for getting to the bottom of things and strive for excellence.

Proofreading skills and familiarity with content management systems are helpful, but not required. Reliable transportation very helpful.

When you write us (please don't telephone), it is helpful if you tell us a little bit about your skills, experience, interests and anything else you might want to share so that we may respond to your inquiry more fully.

Widen your cultural horizons, hone your skills, enhance your resume, work with other amazing people from all over the world, learn more about the cultural treasures of San Diego, possibly get free passes to major local events and make a difference by volunteering with us! Please note that our office is only open Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 5 pm. We are not open in the evenings or on weekends. Please visit our website: www.thewvp.org and our online magazine : www.parobs.org for more information.
