We are happy to invite all those interested to the new volunteer project of our Association.
Public tender for an editor (or editors)
We are looking for someone who will design a fanzine, and those who would like to write and graphically design it. The idea is that each edition of the fanzine deals with a theme or event of the residency.
If you have the will and inspiration, contact us and come to us on the island and start writing and/or designing, and you can also write/or design from home.
What do we offer?
We offer a two-week stay in Biševo in the association's premises during the creation and editing of the fanzine. Brainstorming and working in the original atmosphere of the Biševska residence, and exploring the island.
A certificate of completed volunteer project that you can attach to your resume.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for person/s who are fans of our association's work, want to join and contribute with their knowledge, will and joy. The conditions are that you are an expert in the topic you will write about, it can be just a hobby or interest, but that you can present an observation or concept in a simple and understandable way.
We expect the editor to put together the sections and basic features of the fanzine. In principle, they would like the reading to be easy to read, illustrated, entertaining, simply written, meaningful, connected to sources and popular.
The fanzine concept can also be put together in a home environment. The person who edits the fanzine should suggest the format of the fanzine and the printing method.
Although we greatly appreciate your work, currently writing a fanzine is one of the volunteer positions. Our residence is based on a private initiative without the support of institutions, so volunteer work in exchange for the experience of the island and accommodation with us is the only option we have.
If you know how to write projects and apply for financial support (or you know someone who could do it), we, like the Association, will be happy to support you and pay you a fee.
Topics we cover
History of the island, sociology of the population: life on the island, profile of people from the island, archaeology, astronomy, natural and cultural resources of the island, flora and fauna, wild and medicinal plants, permaculture, landscaping, landscaping of dry walls and piers, artistic residences, artistic and cultural programs, association work, healthy lifestyle, volunteering in the community, vegetarian/vegan recipes, etc…
