Are you the next Art New England editor?

ANE_SO11_Cover.jpgFor the last few years, I've been occasionally writing for Art New England -- and I've always enjoyed the experience. It's a niche magazine, but one that is dear to the hearts of many artists and visual arts readers. The magazine is undergoing a leadership change and looking for a new chief. Here's the skinny for those looking to lead a magazine and work for (I assume, based on fees to writers) labor-of-love wages.
