Poetry 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 poetry section of carte blanche for three issues per year (winter, spring/summer and fall). In particular, they would read all poetry submissions received, organize submissions and respond to authors through Submittable. They would also copyedit and suggest more substantial changes to poetry accepted for publication, when necessary. Because carte blanche is based in Montreal and publishes French texts in translation, knowledge of both English and French is an asset for this position. Excellent copyediting skills and keen attention to detail are key. Above all, we seek a passionate fan of literature and art—someone who has a love for narrative in their DNA.
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 July 12, 2019. The positions’ duties will formally commence August 2019, or as soon as possible, with work on the Fall 2019 issue. Candidate should be based in Montreal.
