Become a Literary Mama! Seeking Editors and Editorial Assistants

No comments

We're looking for four wonderful women (mothers!) to join us here on the Literary Mama editorial board.

Creative Nonfiction Co-Editor
The Creative Nonfiction Co-Editor will head up the Creative Nonfiction department with Shari MacDonald, our current CNF Editor. Duties and joys include selecting nonfiction pieces, writing acceptance and rejection letters, working with authors on accepted essays, disseminating submission calls, formatting material for web publication, and more. Editing experience vital, computer savvy helpful, publication history a strong plus.

Columns Co-Editor
The Columns Co-Editor will head up the Columns department with Marjorie Osterhout, our current Columns Editor. Duties and joys include working with columns authors, handling administrative duties (our Columns department is very active), formatting material for web publication, and more. Editing experience vital, computer savvy helpful, publication history a strong plus.

Creative Nonfiction Editorial Assistant and Columns Editorial Assistant
We seek two Editorial Assistants for our Columns and CNF departments. The Editorial Assistants' duties and thrills include copyediting, troubleshooting, and general support services. Candidates should possess strong copyediting skills and some computer savvy. Publication history helpful, but not necessary.

* To apply for any of these positions, you must be a mother and a writer.
* All work is done over the Internet.
* Literary Mama is an all-volunteer organization.

Please send us an email to info@literarymama.com stating which position(s) you are interested in talking with us about. Include a cover letter, CV, mention of your mothering status, and a writing sample.

We look forward to hearing from you!
