Candidates must be available at least two days per week, preferably Tuesday and Wednesday to assist with the Double X Gabfest.

To apply, email a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability and cultural interests, a résumé, a short critique of any Double X piece from the last year (no more than 300 words), and three clips or writing samples (links are fine, but no PDF files) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
