The managing editor works closely with the editor-in-chief to help steer the magazine forward. The successful candidate will support and coordinate the editorial team in all aspects of production and promotion of three issues per year. In particular, they will oversee logistical matters relating to the successful and timely publication of every issue. This includes maintaining correspondence with authors, drafting author contracts and ensuring they are signed, managing submissions on Submittable, and uploading and formatting content for each issue. Knowledge of WordPress, elementary coding and Photoshop is essential. Because carte blanche is based in Montreal and publish French texts in translation, knowledge of both English and French is an asset, but not required, for this position. Excellent copy editing skills and keen attention to detail are key. Above all, we seek a passionate fan of literature and art with the capacity to organize a team.
This is a part-time role for which you will receive a modest annual stipend funded through the QWF. All carte blanche activities are done remotely as our magazine does not have a physical office.
Application Deadline 30 September 2019. Training late October.
