Exponent II Magazine Seeking New Editor-in-Chief

We at Exponent II are seeking a new Editor in Chief for our quarterly magazine, which shares the voices of women and gender minorities across the Mormon spectrum. The magazine publishes personal narratives, theological essays, fiction, poetry, and art. Exponent II seeks an Editor in Chief who has a vision for growing and evolving the magazine, and who will commit to realizing that vision over the next few years.

The magazine has a long and storied history. It was created in the 1970s when a group of Mormon women in Boston discovered the existence of the “Woman’s Exponent”, a publication of the LDS Relief Society from 1874 until 1914. The Boston-based group revived the concept and began the publication of a periodical that has been sustained for the past ~45 years.

The new Editor in Chief will spend a few months shadowing the outgoing Editor in Chief, Margaret Olsen Hemming, before taking on full responsibility in Spring 2021. See here for more details about the position and its requirements.

To apply for the Editor in Chief position, please send a cover letter and CV by September 15 to [email protected]. The cover letter should include a brief description of your vision and priorities for the magazine.


  1. I’m thrilled for the magazine and a little sad that Margaret’s term is over. Thank you, Margaret, for your time, insight, and devotion to intersectional feminism.

  2. I’m excited for another exciting chapter in the Exponent II organization! I hope that instead of offering a small stipend that you will pay the editor fairly and show women that their work is properly valued. Women do so much uncompensated labor both in and out of the Church already!
