Managing Editor

Flagship Publishing seeks a Managing Editor for Nebraska Life to generate original story ideas, write features, assign stories to freelancers and work with them to produce writing that meets our high standards.

 

Nebraska Life publishes entertaining, timeless narratives about Nebraska’s people, places, history and culture; we do not publish news stories, trend pieces, product reviews or anything that reads like ad copy or advertorial. The ideal Managing Editor is a skilled storyteller with a nose for finding compelling anecdotes with real-life characters and a strong sense of place. Magazine experience and photography a plus. Prior familiarity with Nebraska is not required, but the desire to immerse yourself in the state’s unique culture and find new yarns to spin is.

 

The Managing Editor will regularly travel Nebraska to work on stories for Nebraska Life and for Flagship Publishing’s related travel guides, books and websites. The position is based in Norfolk, Nebraska, but we will consider remote work arrangements for highly qualified candidates.

   Above all, our stories are entertaining. We value vivid storytelling, lively anecdotes and factual accuracy. We work with writers who are able to infuse fun, adventure, human emotion, drama and an attitude of wonderment in their words. Introduce us to fascinating people, places, events or issues. You care about your subject-make us care about it, too. We use anecdote-based storytelling: We tell stories with stories. Please read our magazine to see the technique of anecdote-based storytelling. We especially look for stories about the institutions that have had a profound effect on our state. An institution could be a person, place, object, issue or event. We welcome stories that show a crisis and how a person or community met the challenge. Other possibilities are stories on nature, history, the arts, sports, business and agriculture. We welcome articles of a controversial nature as long as they are balanced and fair.

  Beautiful. That word sums it up. Whether we’re showing landscapes, wildlife, people, communities, history or food, our photos are visually compelling. We accept stock photography and also make full feature-story assignments. Photographers should strive to communicate a sense of place in photos submitted to the magazine. If you are working on a major feature story for us, we appreciate seeing all of your images, rather than a small selection. We sometimes see diamonds you might have overlooked. We especially want to see photos of people at work and play, people as part of a larger scene and people up close and candid enough that we feel we’re getting to know them — young and old, beautiful and ugly, city and country, rich and poor and everything in between.

  • Opportunities at Flagship Publishing

    At Flagship Publishing, our interns work on projects that matter – all while gaining hands-on experience in the publishing industry. You’ll get th opportunity to work on real projects that will help in the production of our popular magazines.

     

     

    Our internship program

    Our magazine internships are 8 weeks long and can be either full or part time. They are customizable to fit your skills and passions. Interns can focus on one of the below tracks or can broaden their experience through multiple tracks. We offer internships in the following areas:

    Magazine Writing Internships: Writing interns learn how to expertly tell stories through colorful anecdotes, a sense of place and lively characters. They produce department and feature stories for publication. Our writing interns have sharp storytelling skills and clean, well-organized writing.

    Magazine Editing Internships: Editing interns learn how to make our publications the best they can be. They work closely with writers and designers to refine our upcoming issues, managing existing material and producing material of their own. Our editing interns have an expert understanding of writing, grammar and usage as well as an eye for detail.

     

    Magazine Photography Internships: Photography interns learn how to make two-dimensional photographs three-dimensional stories. They travel the state capturing a true sense of place and character. Our photography interns are skilled with DSLR cameras and Adobe Photoshop.

    Magazine Advertising Sales Internships: Advertising sales interns learn how to connect our advertising clients with our audience of readers. They find leads and build relationships with potential advertisers. Our advertising sales interns don’t necessarily need sales experience, but are smart, driven communicators who care about people.
