Update: we’re reviewing applications – if you got in touch and don’t hear from us by Sunday the 11th, please drop us a line.
2012 is going to be an interesting year for Structo. We have deliberately been growing the magazine slowly — we allegedly have day jobs after all — making sure that it doesn’t get away from under us. The next stages of growth will become clear from the next issue, but to help us be ready for that, we need your help.
The first post we’re looking to fill is that of poetry editor. I think we’ve done really well on the poetry front so far, but it’s getting to the point where the sheer volume of submissions means we have to divide and conquer. The poetry editor will be working with the editor, reading and evaluating submissions on our biannual submissions schedule, and generally giving verse a voice on the team.
We are also in need of an extra pair of eyes, and are looking for a proofreader to work with our excellent copy editor. Elaine is also a copy editor when she’s not helping out with Structo, so this would be a great opportunity to learn how it all works from a pro.
You don’t have to be based anywhere in particular, but potential proofreaders will need to be familiar with British English. If you are interested, have any questions, or just want to point out typos in this post*, please get in touch.
