Kick-Ass Manager Wanted for Fast-Growing Women’s Lifestyle Magazine

Sass Magazine, headquartered in Frederick, MD,  is a growing women’s lifestyle and professional publication, both as a regional print magazine and a national online media source. 

Sass Studios, publishers of Sass Magazine, seeks an energetic, organized, detail-oriented and ambitious individual to join our growing team.  The Magazine & Events Manager will report to and work directly with the founder and owner of Sass Magazine and will communicate with our writers, sources, photographers, and event vendors. This is a part-time position, based on approximately 15-20 hours per week, with the possibility to grow into a full-time position.

The position is ideal for someone who is both detail-oriented and a creative thinker, as well as someone who is capable of staying on top of all the details and deadlines that are part of our magazine’s production. The candidate must also have excellent communication skills via email, phone, and in person. 

If you are a self-motivated individual who is hoping to continuously learn on the job, flex your writing skills, help plan amazing events, and have opportunities to help empower women—you’re in the right place! If you want to clock in and clock out, while simply being a “yes (wo)man”, – sorry, we’re not for you!

The right candidate will join our growing and collaborative team to produce top-notch editorial content as well as fun and educational events throughout our western Maryland region. This position is mainly virtual, though availability for in-person meetings, tasks, and event setup is preferred. While hours are flexible, candidate must be available during normal workday hours, as well as during evening events when scheduled.

Responsibilities:

Creative Content Tasks: Attend weekly content brainstorming sessions with Sass team members. Help publisher develop editorial calendars and story content ideas. Write spotlight articles and special interview sections.

Management: Manage distribution data and magazine subscriptions on a bi-monthly basis. Coordinate all article and photography submissions with copy editor as needed.

Event Task: Help plan Sass events, coordinating with all venue and event vendors. Help market and promote Sass events. Attend, set up, and manage both virtual and in-person events.

  • Dedication to error-free work and communications; attention to detail, including spelling and grammar
