Triple Canopy, a nonprofit magazine located in Manhattan, seeks a Deputy Editor. Triple Canopy publishes and presents work by artists, writers, and researchers, primarily through the magazine’s digital platform but also in books, conversations, performances, videos, and podcasts, among other media and experiences.
We’re looking for someone who finds pleasure and sustenance in art and literature and shares our belief in magazines as testing grounds for new ideas and forms of expression. The magazine is committed to the role of artists and writers in shaping our understanding of the world and enabling us to glimpse alternatives to the present. We strive to bring together disparate voices, styles, and experiences, with an emphasis on those that have too often been marginalized, and we hope that the Deputy Editor will be excited to join us in this work.
In the coming year, Triple Canopy will launch a new publishing platform that reflects changes to our editorial program and efforts to engage with readers. To help guide the magazine during this pivotal juncture, we’re looking for a talented editor who is meticulous, communicative, highly organized, and invested in collaboration (and the management entailed in such work). In addition to editing contributions to the magazine, the Deputy Editor will provide critical oversight by managing the editorial team during the day-to-day development of all publications. The Deputy Editor will contribute to the conception and realization of issues and other initiatives; steward communications among relevant staff; maintain standards and accountability; establish collective priorities; and organize editorial meetings.
