Democratic Left needs skilled volunteers!

Democratic Left is DSA’s volunteer-led nationwide print-and-online publication. It’s now America’s largest socialist publication at a time of exploding interest in socialism, and we’re eager to improve the quality of the publication and increase its online frequency and reach. To accomplish that, we have great need of skilled volunteers in the following categories:

  • Graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, layout/design
  • Copy editors, proofreaders, and fact checkers
  • Editors (developing relationships with writers, fielding pitches and soliciting articles, and working with them to improve articles)
  • Writers and reporters

To volunteer for Democratic Left, please fill out the application here. Right now, we’re particularly looking for writers, especially book reviewers and cultural commentators. If that’s you, apply today or pass this on to a friend!
