Dear SUBTLE friends,
In 2012, SUBTLE is seeking a wide variety of volunteer staffers offering a diverse array of interests and skills beyond writing. Those who are inspired to join a new form of Asian-American activism, but do not know where to start, are especially encouraged to apply.
To apply please email us (email@example.com) your a) name, b) location, c) resume/CV, and d) a one-paragraph personal statement on how SUBTLE has touched your life by December 31st, 2011. SUBTLE will contact you with further details on the joining process. (Referrals via SUBTLE readers are also welcome. Simply replace “d)” in your application with e) a one-paragraph personal statement on what you wish a magazine such as SUBTLE might do for the Asian-American and American communities.)
While SUBTLE cannot expound on specific plans for 2012, the following are general profiles of open staff positions that are open to applications from anyone in the United States (for now):
- Event Planner - You have had some experience helping plan successful events as part of an organization of some sort, and you are confident that you can put together a successful event in your local area in a relatively short amount of time. Beyond your skills, your most valuable asset is your warm, engaging, and sincere presence.
- Graphic Design Specialist - You are adept at HTML, photo editing, graphic illustration, print layout, or some combination of those skills. And, your creative talent, driven by your conscientious commitment to social justice, allows you to design material in a politically artistic way.
- Socially Conscious Fashionista - Yes, that’s right. You have the eye of the (fashion) tiger that can see what does and does not go together for either a woman or a man. More importantly, you cannot stand the Anglo-American artificial standard of beauty and the industry’s wide-spread cheap labor practices. So, you know of styles, shops, and resources that are socially conscious and you can put together a look that does not look like another Anglo mannequin at the mall.
- Music Content Curator - You, or you know of many who, make music from their heart as an Asian-American looking out at a world that does not seem to belong to Asian-Americans. The melody, rhyme, rhythm, and/or lyrics all speak directly into the souls of any who experience something similar and who are looking for inspiration. And, you know it will make a difference in the lives of others if they just heard it.
- Fictional Writing Curator - You like writing or reading fictional short stories or novels that are inspirational and make bold statements about the state of society. In particular, you dream about writing fictional short stories about the Asian-American experience and how it is so misunderstood by non-Asian-Americans. If someone gave you a chance to do it, you know you could wow your readers by the profound depth of meaning in your stories.
- Film/Movie Curator - You are an aspiring actor or director and either you or someone you know is involved in making films that inspire a commitment to social justice in the Asian-American community. You have a special preference for “indie” (independent) film-makers that are trying to stay true to their beliefs and not be swayed by the money that goes around the industry. And, you want them to get some very much deserved positive attention for their work.
- Religious Content Curator - You are involved with a religious community that serves a large portion of the Asian-American population and you are able to think critically about its past and its future in terms of its interaction with the next generation of Asian-Americans. In particular, you want people to see a particular side of religion that people usually do not see. And, you can imagine a society with or without religion for the better.
