Hi folks, 

Please consider applying for one of three technical editing positions
for the writing journal _Prompt_. I'm just wrapping up a term as the
Associate Production Editor and found the team great to work with. The
chief technical editor in particular is an outstanding mentor from whom
I learned much concerning stuff like LaTeX and Atom. The work you'd be
doing would fit nicely within the librarian skillset. Below you will
find details in the official call. 

Without ado further, the official call: 

The editors of _Prompt: A Journal of Academic Writing Assignments_ [1]
are currently seeking to fill three roles on our technical editing team.
This is an opportunity to help develop and run the production of an
open-access journal that promotes excellence in the teaching of writing
across the disciplines. _Prompt _is a scholar-run journal, and these are
all volunteer positions. The positions are: 

 	* Site Editor
 	* Production Editor
 	* Associate Production Editor

Detailed descriptions of each position are below. 

Our current Technical Editor, Jon Dueck, would oversee the transition
from our current team to the incoming team. You would be coming into a

your email and in the letter of interest. We welcome applicants from
