Is a contributor the same thing as an editor?

Not quite. While editors are also contributors, editors have made additional commitments. Editors are responsible for finding high quality content for the magazine, not necessarily responsible for producing content themselves. An Editor is in charge of a column based on an origami topic, perhaps for example, “Origami Crease Patterns”. The Editor would then be in charge of obtaining novel and interesting content based on that topic on a periodic basis, typically six times per year (once per issue).

The definition of an editor is not inflexible, and there are variations (for example, we have one editor who just does copyediting). If you’d like to contribute in some way, please contact The Fold at thefold [at] origamiusa.org and tell us what you’re interested in doing.
