Soliloquies 28.1 & 28.2
Soliloquies Anthology is currently seeking applicants for our 2023-24 Editorial Committee!
We are hiring the following positions:
We are looking for creative leaders in the Concordia undergraduate community who are driven to maintain an inclusive and active literary environment within Concordia, Montreal, and Canada. Being a co-editor-in-chief at Soliloquies can provide invaluable experience in the publishing industry to build up your resume and help jumpstart a career in the field. There are two (2) volunteer positions that require between 5 and 15 hours of work per week. Find descriptions of the positions below.
Some responsibilities include:
Hiring a 15-person masthead for the 2023/2024 school year.
Proposing a budget to Concordia's Arts and Science Federation of Associations (ASFA).
Determining a schedule for submissions opening, closing, edits being completed, and the printing of the anthology.
Organizing social events and the launches at the end of each semester.
Conducting decision meetings each semester to finalize the contents of each issue (usually on the weekend).
Offering inspiration to the artistic director regarding the aesthetic of the posters and publication.
Providing support to the social media manager regarding forms of engagement and their schedules.
Giving direction to the web content team regarding themes for articles and their posting schedule.
We believe the most important step in diversifying literary spaces is welcoming underrepresented writers into leadership positions such as our masthead. Therefore, we especially encourage applications from those who identify as Indigenous, Black, racialized, disabled, 2SLGBTQQIPAA+, those who are otherwise affected by structural inequality, such as immigrants, survivors of assault, and anyone subject to marginalization due to class, age, and/or current or former incarceration.
In a similar fashion as our submission process, we invite applicants to disclose these identities in the cover letter if they feel comfortable. Including why you are interested in publishing, how past experience gave you the skills necessary to meet deadlines while juggling a busy school schedule, and your knowledge of our past issues are also encouraged in the cover letter.
Please send your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org between 12am on March 12th and 11:59pm on March 31st, 2023.
EDIT: deadline extended until 11:59 on April 11th, 2023!
