Am I right for this part time job?

Since I will be unemployed May 3 when this tour ends, now's the time to poke around for new opportunities. Here's one: "Editor/Content Manager" for three sites owned by the same company:
1. BroadwaySpace: runs on Ning (like the Orlando Improv Everywhere group), but BS is doing the $19/month premium service. How does it stack up against MTIShowspace, another theatre social network I wrote about in December?

2. Best of Off Broadway: calls itself "the most complete and exclusive source for Off-Broadway news, tickets, and show information."

3 Did He Like It: a gathering of Ben Brantley and other reviewers' reviews. The "he" in the title refers to Brantley
The job responsibilities will include:
- Coming up with feature story and video ideas
- Coordinating the production of feature videos with our crew
- Writing daily news blurbs and feature stories
- Managing reviewers
- Uploading photos, videos to websites
The ideal person for this position would possess the following skills and qualifications:
- Experience in theatrical media (preferably websites)
- Relationships with theatrical press reps
- Strong computer skills (graphic design, photoshop, video editing and HTML a plus)
- Excellent and exciting writer
- Organized and outgoing
- Interested in getting involved with a start up business and helping it grow.
We see this as a part-time position that would lead to full time. There may be the possibility to work from home. Salary commensurate upon experience. Interested applicants should email
