Stillwater Magazine, IC’s art and literary publication, is looking for an assistant layout editor this semester. We're hoping this person will replace our current layout editor next year. Experience with InDesign is preferred, but if you have an interest in learning the editor can also teach you as she designs this year’s issue. Stillwater only comes out in the spring, so you must be on campus for spring 2015. We’d also prefer someone who will be around for a year or two. Underclassmen are encouraged to apply. Send your resume, cover letter and any relevant work samples to by 2/21. We look forward to hearing from you!

Submitted on behalf of Julia Herman '14, CHP Intern.
