Motorcycle Classics & Farm Collectibles Editorial Career Opportunities
Assistant Editor/Associate Editor
Ogden Publications is looking for an Assistant Editor/Associate Editor to help produce a trio of specialty enthusiast magazines for collectors of vintage farm equipment and motorcycles. The magazines you’ll help produce are crafted for an engaged and passionately enthusiastic audience of collectors of what we affectionately call “old iron.” We're specifically looking for someone with an interest and background in all things mechanical, especially motorcycles, old engines and farm equipment, but if you just love history and have an appreciation for interesting collections, we’d still like to meet you.
Farm Collector magazine shares stories about vintage farm equipment and memorabilia, from the joy of restoring a vintage 1921 Fordson tractor to the hunt for John Deere watch fobs, along with company histories and firsthand remembrances of life on the farm.
Gas Engine Magazine features stories on the collection, preservation and restoration of vintage farm engines. Once manufactured in the hundreds of thousands to supply power in the days before electricity, these engines are now rare collectibles, highly valued by a unique community of enthusiasts.
Motorcycle Classics looks at classic motorcycles from around the world, particularly bikes from the 1960s and 1970s. The fastest growing of the three titles, Motorcycle Classics is sold on newsstands across the U.S. and in the U.K., Australia and more.
Primary duties include but are hardly limited to proofing and copy editing, writing copy, supporting ongoing online activities such as content updating, blogging and SEO, plus other editorial and administrative tasks. Strong organizational and communication skills are a must, as are proven proofing and copy editing skills. Experience with SEO and online content management systems is strongly preferred, but we’ll train the right person.
The ideal candidate enjoys preparing content for traditional as well as digital formats, and must enjoy the challenge of working on multiple projects, constantly shifting gears from one set of duties to another: If you enjoy doing a little bit of everything — and being constantly asked to learn more — this job's for you. It’s absolutely critical to be a team player with an easy-going, can-do attitude.
