Website Adirondack Explorer (Getting the Word Out, Inc.)

The nonprofit voice for the Adirondack Park

The Adirondack Explorer, a non-profit newsmagazine devoted to the protection and enjoyment of the Adirondack Park, is looking for an outdoor-loving, top-notch editor to carry on this 20-year enterprise.

The successful candidate will be an experienced journalist equally adept at writing and editing and who is comfortable posting digital content from a phone, laptop, or desktop computer to a variety of platforms.

The Explorer is a print magazine (with a digital app) that comes out six times a year. It also publishes an Annual Outings Guide. The editor will be expected to write a few articles for each issue and assign other articles to a part-time reporter and a stable of freelance reporters, columnists, and photographers. The editor will edit stories closely for accuracy, completeness, readability, and grammar.

In addition, the editor will work with the staff to produce and post digital content-including articles, photos, and videos-for the Adirondack Explorer and Adirondack Almanack websites and affiliated social media. The editor also will be asked to dream up new ways to use the content in the Explorer’s rich archives for books and digital platforms.

Candidates should have a keen interest in environmental issues and outdoor recreation.

Interested candidates should send a resume and letter of interest to Publisher Tracy Ormsbee at tracy@adirondackexplorer.org.
