(CAE’s long-time Editor & Publisher is retiring at the end of the year.). First published in 2015, the magazine’s circulation has grown from 8,000 to roughly 95,000 readers through a combination of lively, relevant writing and world-class graphic design. The Editor & Publisher will work alongside a graphic designer, who will share responsibility for the design features of the magazine.

  • Write short articles
  • Keep up with local policy trends and events to integrate into the editorial output of the magazine
  • Publish all pieces on time with engaging headlines, subheads, cutlines and pull quotes.
  • Maintain marketing strategies


  • Ideally, several years experience in helping policy experts produce reader-friendly long-form magazine articles and pithy (500-word) short pieces or related experience and a naturally strong managerial personality
  • Strong project management skills, an ability to meet deadlines, and an ability to ensure that other team members are adhering to deadlines and word counts
  • Strong editing and writing skills
  • The ability to work with a variety of different personalities and coordinate multiple team members to meet the final goal
  • Understanding all aspects of producing a magazine from folio to pre-production
  • Familiarity with the state-level intersection of public policy and politics
  • Outstanding proof-reading skills
  • Experience in the processes of public opinion polling
  • Knowledge of Mac-based InDesign program.
