carte blanche, founded in 2004, is the official online magazine of the Quebec Writers’ Federation. We are celebrating over 15 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 member to join the Montreal-based editorial team:
Photography Editor – the editor works both independently and in collaboration with the editorial team to help steer the magazine forward. The successful candidate would lead the photography section of carte blanche for three issues per year (winter, spring/summer and fall). Their responsibilities would include evaluating all photography submissions received, organize submissions, and respond to photographers through Submittable. The candidate should have at least basic image editing skills, be familiar with contemporary fine art and photography, and have a good eye for narrative imagery.
The position receives a modest annual stipend. It 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.
Interested candidates should send a brief summary of their qualifications and reasons for applying to firstname.lastname@example.org before January 12, 2020. The positions’ duties will formally commence February 2020, or as soon as possible, with work on the Winter 2020 issue. Candidate should be based in Montreal.
carte blanche, as affiliated with the QWF, actively seeks to maximize diversity in its staff, part-time employees, membership, and board of directors. We welcome applications from all qualified individuals, and encourage Indigenous persons, persons of colour, LGBTQ+ and gender-nonconforming persons, persons with disabilities, women, and members of any other marginalized group to self‐identify if they are comfortable doing so.
