[Linux-aus] Technical writer/deputy editor required in Sydney

An Australian technical magazine is looking for a replacement for their 
technical editor, working from Sydney. I'm not interested in moving 
there for a variety of reasons.

The previous editor has kind-of moved up in the organisation and is now 
working from England. Her replacement has quit as an editor and moved 
to Melbourne following his SWMBO's work and the smell of a programming 
job, but continues to contribute as a writer.

AFAICT, the position entails some technical writing, some editing, and 
some preparing the magazine for production. This year and last year the 
holder of the position was flown to conferences and other events, so I 
guess travel is more or less a part of the package. The magazine 
publishes a range of technical material including both open source and 
closed source tutorials, reviews and the like.

I know absolutely nothing in terms of details like pay and hours, but if 
you're interested and think you might fit the position, please contact 
Lisa (whom CC'ed) and ask lots of questions. Lisa is very open and 
helpful, a pleasure to work with.

I'd put this on the job boards and leave it at that, but I gather that 
they're expanding as a company anyway and so are short-handed and in a 
hurry to find the right someone. If you want a chance to put your oar 
in, I'm sure opportunities will arise as long as you do the job 

If I've got any of this wrong, I'll publish addenda under the same 
subject line in the next day or so.

Cheers; Leon
