carte blanche, founded in 2004, is the official online magazine of the Quebec Writers’ Federation. We are celebrating over 14 years of promoting poetry, creative nonfiction, comics, translation, photography, fiction, and literary commentary from Quebec, Canada, and around the world. With ongoing support from the Canada Council of the Arts and private donations, carte blanche is able to pay all of its contributors, and maintains a dynamic and unique niche online.
Currently, carte blanche is seeking an enthusiastic new member to lead the editorial team:
Editor-In-Chief—the successful candidate would support the editorial team in all aspects of production and promotion of three issues per year (winter, spring/summer and fall) and be in charge of regular blog updates. They would shape the creative direction of the magazine, nurture a growing cohort of contributors, and seek new opportunities that position the magazine to be a useful and relevant voice in the literary and artistic landscape. Because carte blanche is based in Montreal and publish French texts in translation, knowledge of both English and French is an asset for this position. Excellent copyediting skills are key. Candidate must reside in Montreal. Above all, we seek a passionate fan of literature and art—someone who has a love for narrative in their DNA.
The editorial position receives a modest annual stipend. This is an ideal position for any individual not depending on it for a full-time living, but nevertheless committed to contributing to and being part of a flourishing community online.
