This could be a great opportunity for some DrugWarRant readers with a little extra time. MAP is a great resource for the drug policy reform community, but can’t exist without the people who actually sort through all the incoming drug policy articles.
Here’s a note from MAP’s Senior Editor Richard Lake:
As many of you know last year we lost prolific volunteer editors Elizabeth Wehrman and Derek Rea. The passing of Beth was recognized here http://drugsense.org/url/8xJbSdlF and Derek here http://drugsense.org/awards/norml2008.htm
Another previously prolific volunteer editor has cut back on his volunteer work for medical reasons.
The result is that over 95% of the articles posted during the last 15 days have been edited by Jay Bergstrom and Richard – a total of 435 articles. Both are struggling to keep up the pace.
In the last year Jo-D Harrison has extensively updated our editor training system. We desperately need more volunteer editors. We are both ready to assist any volunteers.
The work of being a volunteer editor is rewarding. The amount of work each volunteer does is completely under their control.
Please, if you or anybody you know would like to explore being a volunteer editor contact Jo-D at firstname.lastname@example.org or Richard at email@example.com
