We are seeking a volunteer with desktop publishing experience and some free time, particularly in the first quarter of 2021, to join our friendly team as Magazine Designer. The task – to help prepare the next issue of Pushing Out the Boat, North-East Scotland’s magazine of new writing and the visual arts, for printed publication.
Pushing Out the Boat is a literary and arts magazine, publishing high-quality prose, poetry and art selected from a unique blend of the global and the local. Contributions for publication are chosen following an open call for submissions through the POTB website, then the Editor and Magazine Designer work closely together to assemble the content, design the layout and prepare the magazine for printing.
The current issue of the magazine, Issue 15, was published in April 2019 and now we are making preparations for Issue 16 which, ideally and COVID-19 permitting, will be published in April or May 2021. We are seeking a new Magazine Designer to join the team to assist with the design and undertake the desktop publishing of the new issue.
Interested? Take a look at the ‘Our Magazines’ section of our website at www.pushingouttheboat.co.uk where you will find a sample of the most recent issues of the magazine and the full content of some earlier issues. These will give you the idea of what we will be aiming to produce for Issue 16. Text for the content of the magazine will be provided to the Designer as Word files and the artwork as JPGs. We can provide the desktop publishing and graphics software if required.
POTB is a registered charity (SCIO No SC044919) and is run by a team of enthusiastic and dedicated (unpaid) volunteers.
A fantastic and exciting opportunity to join our great volunteer team. All help greatly appreciated. For more information please contact Roger White, Coordinator at E Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. : 07925 822489.

Strathearn Artspace (known as Strathearn Arts) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO SC044319), whose broad charitable purposes are to support the arts within Strathearn through promotion, education, community engagement and the provision of a sustainable arts centre based in Crieff. We present a diverse and growing programme of artistic and cultural events and exhibitions at our main base on Comrie Street, as well as supporting events in other venues throughout Strathearn. In the past year, we have hosted concerts, theatre, ceilidhs, folk club, tea dances, comedy, visual art exhibitions, a pop-up museum, author readings/recitals and a cinema. At our heart, we are a community-based project whose aim is to support local artists and creatives in a variety of ways, and to promote Strathearn as a cultural hub within the Scottish arts context.
Since the organisation was founded in 2013, we have taken on a range of projects, from renovating our historic former-library building to expanding our programme in terms of both diversity and accessibility. We are currently going through a period of rapid growth and as such are looking to expand our Board with the addition of three new Trustees with a wide range of skills and experience and an interest in supporting the Arts in Strathearn.
Trustees are jointly responsible for running the SCIO and we are looking for individuals with the interests, skills, experience and contacts to identify and exploit new opportunities and help us take Strathearn Arts through its next period of development.
