After 3 years as an @ArchDigest writer and editor, yesterday was my last day due to the mass Condé Nast layoffs. I am now looking for freelance writing work, covering art, architecture, design, and culture
Around a hundred lucky ones have been furloughed, another hundred has been laid off. More to come...
It is finally out, the massive layoff that will end the publisher of lies and propaganda https://nypost.com/2017/12/17/conde-nast-to-announce-layoffs-after-facing-terrible-year/
Not a good sign as the new editor is looking to slash costs and the power struggle from the old guard is unrelenting. Good luck to all affected https://nypost.com/2017/12/09/anna-wintour-may-not-give-up-the-vanity-fair-oscar-party-so-easily/
Despite working for 3 diff titles in this system, I'm ready to go. So much filler, so little intent - except to feed the boojie pipeline. What will I do with my insatiable need to write? Start actually writing.
This just in from the NYT https://nypost.com/2017/12/07/conde-nast-could-merge-fashion-editors-causing-major-layoffs/
More cuts at GQ, 2018 will be bloody http://wwd.com/business-news/media/layoffs-hit-gq-as-conde-nast-cuts-continue-11046736/
On good authority CN has been letting A LOT of people go across the board... including IT and support personnel.
