Community Editor Apprenticeship
This program educates and pays individuals, 16 to 80 years old, aspiring to learn writing and editing skills that produce Saint Paul Almanac, a remarkable anthology of community-based stories, poems, and artwork. These creative works are often expressed by unknown and unrecognized artists.
Saint Paul Almanac’s Community Editor Apprenticeship offers an introduction to the publishing world through the work of reading and editing manuscripts for the book Saint Paul Almanac.
The Community Editor apprenticeship is the only program in Minnesota that is designed to teach an equity-focused editorial process that includes developing writing and editing skills. Learning how to assess artistic quality and identify an authentic voice are among the various skills the apprentices acquire in workshops taught by senior community editors.
Apprentices come from wide-ranging backgrounds, spanning age, ethnicity, language, gender identity, and socio-economic status. The Community Editor Apprenticeship offers experiential learning to those wanting to pursue a publishing career. Several community editors have secured entry-level positions in publishing houses after participating in our program.
