Storyscape Journal Seeks Prose Editor

Storyscape Journal is looking to add a new prose editor to our team.

At Storyscape, we play with genre by using the categories: “Truth,” “Untruth,” and “We don’t know and they won’t tell us.” We publish online issues twice a year representing strong, innovative work from a diverse set of authors. We have published two print anthologies and recently launched our very first print chapbook series.

If you’re a prose writer interested in getting involved (and getting a chance to work with some great people!) please email us the following:

– A short example of your own work

– Tell us about a short story or essay that you love

– A brief response to the question: Why are you interested in our categories? What excites you about reworking the boundaries between fiction/nonfiction?

Please note that this is a volunteer position. Duties include: reading and voting on submissions regularly, helping to copy edit the journal, attending occasional staff meetings via Skype. As our staff is a small group of volunteers, we are looking for editors who can help out with other general tasks as they are able, including helping to plan and promote events, post on social media, etc. We understand that availability may fluctuate, but we are looking for editors who want to make a long-term commitment and who know that they have some time to devote to the journal. We especially are looking for editors to pro-actively contribute to the vision of the journal by sharing ideas for new projects, theme issues, soliciting art, etc. We believe our editors should feel empowered to make this journal as awesome as it can be!

Submit applications to storymaster@storyscapejournal.com by Feb 25th. We look forward to getting to know you!
