There is no compensation -- we are all volunteers here -- but the title is negotiable and we offer the support of a tremendous community of writers and editors worldwide. Literary Mama attracts a growing audience of over 30,000 readers a month, and has been named one of the 101 Best Websites for Writers.

Contact editor-in-chief Caroline Grant (carolinemgrantATgmailDOTcom) to apply.
