Devilfish Review is looking for a new poetry editor! Do you love reading poems? Are you obsessed with sci-fi, fantasy, the odd and strange? Are you ready to work with a team of badass women? Then we have a job for you!
What does it take to be a poetry editor? We ask that you have some experience in writing, publishing, and editing. If you have an MFA, that’s good. If you’ve published a few poems in journals, that’s also good. If you’re familiar with editing a literary journal, that’s helpful too, but really, we’re just looking for someone who’s willing to get their hands dirty and sift through the slush piles alongside us. We ask that you’re tech savvy enough to use Submittable and Dropbox, and anything else we might start using. (Wordpress knowledge wouldn't hurt.) We ask that you’re willing to work for free, which sucks, we know, but we pay our writers first.
All work is done online, so you can live pretty much anywhere as long as you have reliable internet access. This work can be done at any time of the day; we just ask that you keep up with submissions, attend virtual “meetings” usually via Facebook chat, and be a generally helpful human being. The typical time commitment is an hour or two per week.
Sound like fun? Send us your CV!
