Right now is a great time to join us at East on Central, an established, award-winning organization in Highland Park that's been successfully publishing a high quality literary and visual arts journal for 17 years.

Maybe you're a student looking to get experience with publishing. Or perhaps you're a Highland Park resident that wants to meet new people and get involved in the community. Or maybe you're a social media/online communications enthusiast that wants to grow our presence. Even if you just want to get out and distribute flyers, we welcome your contribution! There's something for everyone---at every level of interest and at every kind of time commitment available.

We offer you the opportunity to join our team to

  • Share your knowledge and expertise with us
  • Learn from our team’s 17 years of successful publishing
  • Take advantage of our creative network and inspiration
  • Enjoy our positive and supportive atmosphere

Areas of volunteer opportunities include

  • People-centered outreach to existing and potential journal contributors
  • Communications, via traditional and electronic media
  • Planning, staffing, and promotion of our innovative community programs
  • Technical support in document management and production
  • And more--we're open to suggestions, if you have ideas or expertise you think would be of benefit to us!
