Create layouts for an article in each section. (You’ll get to work with all of the section editors!) Include graphics, make typeset decisions, and promote our features as if they were real clients!

Get your work published! Come away from this three month long project with something to share with prospective clients/customers!

Who We Are: We are a multicultural organization based in Los Angeles to support women in the arts, literature and business. We create a space for burgeoning artists, writers and practicing businesswomen to showcase their work, by producing semiannual printed magazines that serve as portfolio pieces for the contributors who make them—and advertorial pieces for the women-owned businesses we feature.

All volunteers receive a free copy when the issue goes to print. Next printing is June 2022. Volunteers meet via Zoom every Saturday morning 8AM PST/11AM EST. Expect to spend an average of roughly 6 hours per week for 13 weeks, depending on your role.
