Words Without Borders, is looking for a volunteer blogger. This would be a good opportunity for any writer with a strong interest in international literature. The site receives solid traffic and I expect it to grow dramatically in the coming year as we have big things planned. The job description is as follows:

Words Without Borders, the online magazine for international literature, is looking for a volunteer blog editor to write at least one blog post per day related to the international literary and translation community. Content should be varied and cover literary festivals, readings, international and national publishing, and media on other sites including YouTube. The blog editor will coordinate with correspondents and columnists to ensure that content on the site is varied and truly global. Candidates must have a strong interest in international literature, as well as a familiarity with the international press and other media venues. Candidates should know how to successfully conduct advanced searches and be generally web savvy. The blog editor reports to the editor and editorial director. This is an unpaid, volunteer position. Words Without Borders is a nonprofit organization. To apply please send two clips and three ideas for blog post to Rohan Kamicheril at rohan@wordswithoutborders.org.

In addition to our primary blogger we are looking for correspondents--individuals in different regions of the world who could report on the literary scene abroad. Ideas for regular columns are also welcome.
