Talent Fairy Featured Opp: Book of the Month / Head of Original Content



Hello my talented friends. Here’s what the Talent Fairy has up her magic sleeve this month. If you are a member of After Magazines (you know if you are), please say so in your application! 


Head of Original Content / EIC

On behalf of Book of the Month, The Talent Fairy is looking for an experienced and exquisite editor with an entrepreneurial spirit to launch a new editorial product for the popular subscription service. In this newly created role, you will lead the brand’s original content initiative: launching a regular newsletter packaged with perspectives, essays, and author voices that women who love to read will want to read. You will work closely with the editorial (book selection), creative, marketing, and tech teams to build a fun, shareable, smart editorial newsletter that will make BOTM a content destination for women ages 25-45. 

This role is for editorial purists, word lovers, and storytellers. SEO and traffic chasers need not apply. You should revel in the art of shaping a story to make it fresh and fascinating and have endless ideas on how to talk to this audience of women. Bonus if you’ve got bite — prefer someone who can infuse voice, with an edge and isn’t afraid to go there. You should enjoy tapping new contributors and have that magic editing touch that enhances their own voices and storytelling.  

You don’t have to be a book nerd, but bonus points if you are. Most important is your love of storytelling and your enthusiasm to build something new and incredible.

This job reports directly to the CEO.

Apply by sending your resume and cover letter to [email protected].
