Who We Are

We are a team of writers and artists who love animals, beautiful words, and art that is full of life. 

Volunteers can work as much or as little as they like. There are no minimum hours or workloads -- if you can only read one piece each reading period or post once a week to our social media profiles, that is completely fine. The only things we require are for you to be a consistent communicator and to meet deadlines. 

As a thank you for joining our team, we will send you free PDFs of the upcoming magazine. 

Reader positions are open for Honeyguide and Parakeet. The Writer Liaison and Social Media Manager positions are open for all magazines (Honeyguide, Parakeet, and The Field Guide). 

To apply, please read the requirements for your desired position below. Then, click the button below to fill out the application. We will contact you for an interview within a week of receiving your application. 

We look forward to working with you!

  • Generally, the writer will only be working once or twice a month on 2-3 newsletters and 1-3 emails. 

Readers

Responsibilities:

  • Submissions can be between 1-10 pages and need to be completed within a week.

  • You can take on as many or as few submissions each week, just please let us know if you cannot read one week or need a lighter load. 

Proofreaders

We need proofreaders to review content before it's published, both online and in print. The content includes magazine and blog contributions, and website information. 

Expectations:

  • Be professional, courteous, and kind. No reader should be posting submission excerpts or derogatory comments about submissions or contributors.

  • Be knowledgeable in the rules of standard English grammar and clear, concise writing. 

Responsibilities:
