The Sacred Harp Publishing Company is seeking a volunteer to create printable PDF versions of issues of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company Newsletter. The PDFs will complement the online version of the newsletter. They will be made freely available through the Publishing Company website and will be mailed to singers without internet access by request.

The volunteer will work with an Adobe InDesign template to design and lay out five back issues of the newsletter over the next two to three months. The volunteer will then continue to work with the newsletter’s editorial team to lay out PDF versions of new issues of the newsletter as they are published. After the initial work of laying out back issues of the newsletter, we anticipate that this will involve five to ten hours of work every three or four months.

The volunteer should have experience working with Adobe InDesign (or related programs) and access to a copy of InDesign. Familiarity with Adobe Photoshop and WordPress is welcome, but not required. Experience with lay out or graphic design is also a plus.

If you would like to help out, please contact Jesse at jesse@originalsacredharp.com with a short note describing your relevant skills and experience and indicating why you’re interested in volunteering. Feel free to write with any questions as well.
