We’re hiring fiction and poetry editors!

Do you love CanLit? Are you always on the lookout for emerging authors and poets? If so, we want you! This Magazine is looking for both a fiction editor and poetry editor!

Our fiction editor is responsible for overseeing the magazine’s fiction section. This Magazine publishes six print issues a year, with each issue featuring a short story by a prominent or up-and-coming Canadian writer. Our poetry editor is responsible for overseeing the magazine’s poetry section every issue, featuring two or more poems from a Canadian poet. Both editors are also responsible for the curation of our annual Summer Reading Issue.

Ideal candidates have experience editing short fiction or poetry, a familiarity with emerging and established Canadian authors and poets, an understanding of Canada’s arts and literature scene, and a love for small print media.

Both positions pay a small per-issue stipend. This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere in Canada. 

This Magazine was named “Small Magazine of the Year” by the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors’ in 2010 and 2011. It has been called “what journalism is meant to be” and “the most dangerous magazine in Canada.” Since 1966, we have been publishing smart, edgy writing on politics, opinion, and the arts.

This Magazine is committed to equal opportunity in hiring and we encourage applications by individuals from minority constituencies currently underrepresented in Canadian media.

Please email your resumé and cover letter by Thursday, May 9, 2019 with the subject line “Fiction editor application” or “Poetry editor application” to [email protected]
