Do you love CanLit? Are you always on the lookout for diverse and emerging authors? Are you a huge supporter of small presses and independent publishing? If so, we want you! This Magazine is looking for a Reviews Editor!
Our reviews editor is responsible for overseeing the reviews portion of the magazine’s Arts & Ideas section. This Magazine publishes six print issues a year, with each issue featuring one feature review (200 words), 5 regular reviews (100 words/each), and one book excerpt (350 words). We review work published by small presses with an emphasis on new and emerging writers. We review novels, short story collections, poetry, non-fiction, essay collections, graphic novels, plays, and memoir. We strive for regional diversity, i.e. showcasing writers and presses from various urban and rural locations across the country. We prioritize books from marginalized writers and work about political and social justice themes. The intent of the reviews section is to promote new Canadian and Indigenous small press books.
Ideal candidates have some combination of editing experience, reviewing experience, a familiarity with emerging and established Canadian authors, interest in various forms of Canadian writing, and a love of small print media.
This position pays a small per-issue stipend. This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere in Canada. Candidates must be Canadian residents.
This Magazine encourages applications by individuals from marginalized groups currently underrepresented in Canadian media. We’re looking for early career editors looking to break into the industry.
