We are not accepting new field editors at this time. We will reopen the application process early next year. Stay tuned for more details!
We’ve created a private Facebook community for our volunteer Field Editors program and we want you to join us! Our Field Editors are an enthusiastic group of some of our most devoted readers who want to be more involved with Birds & Blooms magazine. In our Facebook community, our readers share what’s going on in their backyards, ask (and answer!) each other’s birding and gardening questions, and support each other’s excitement about nature. Our Field Editors’ thoughts, ideas, stories, and bird photos regularly appear in our magazine, too!
What else can you expect if you join? Birds & Blooms editorial staff often jump in the conversation and turn to the Field Editors for their birding and gardening expertise. Editorial staff also share some of what’s going on behind-the-scenes at the magazine, including sneak peeks of upcoming issues, and occasionally ask for suggestions and feedback on the magazine.
If this sounds like a group you’d like to be a part of, here’s how to apply:
Email us at [email protected] with “Field Editor” in the subject line.
Be sure to include…
- Mailing address (including city/state)
- The email address connected to your Facebook account (that’s what we need to invite you to the group)
- Whether you’re a current Birds & Blooms subscriber or have been in the past
- 100 words or less why you would be a good fit for our Field Editors group
Please keep in mind that this is an unpaid volunteer position and we are not able to financially compensate you.
We can’t wait to have you join the team!
