Managing Editor

Flagship Publishing seeks a Managing Editor for Nebraska Life to generate original story ideas, write features, assign stories to freelancers and work with them to produce writing that meets our high standards.

Nebraska Life publishes entertaining, timeless narratives about Nebraska’s people, places, history and culture; we do not publish news stories, trend pieces, product reviews or anything that reads like ad copy or advertorial. The ideal Managing Editor is a skilled storyteller with a nose for finding compelling anecdotes with real-life characters and a strong sense of place. Magazine experience and photography a plus. Prior familiarity with Nebraska is not required, but the desire to immerse yourself in the state’s unique culture and find new yarns to spin is.

The Managing Editor will regularly travel Nebraska to work on stories for Nebraska Life and for Flagship Publishing’s related travel guides, books and websites. The position is based in Norfolk, Nebraska, but we will consider remote work arrangements for highly qualified candidates. Apply with cover letter, resume, references and published clips to talent@flagshippublishing.com.

Advertising Sales Representative

Our publication designers are skilled visual artists, copywriters, planners and project managers.
