Call for Editors
Apply to work with us next year!
Soliloquies Anthology is seeking applicants for the 2020/2021 school year.
Poetry and prose editors will work to select the pieces to publish in each anthology. Soliloquies is looking for enthusiastic students who have a strong command of the English language and literary genres, especially contemporary writing. An ability to collaborate with others is a necessity, as both the poetry and prose teams are made up of four individuals. There is also an emphasis on the ability to work within a fast-paced environment, and to adapt to new developments (i.e. deadlines, working around changing circumstances, publication errors, etc.). During our open submission period, you must be able to commit to 5-10 hours of work a week. Previous editing experience in areas of poetry, prose, creative nonfiction, book and event reviews, social media promos, and/or opinion pieces are an asset.
Web content creators are in charge of writing and submitting blog posts that will be published on the Soliloquies website. This is a great opportunity for your voice and style to be heard. Soliloquies is looking for enthusiastic students who have a strong command of the English language, and an awareness of what is going on in the literary community, in Montreal and beyond. An ability to work quickly and meet deadlines is a necessity, and you must be able to commit to around 5 hours of work a week. Previous editing experience in areas of poetry, prose, creative nonfiction, book and event reviews, social media promos, and/or opinion pieces are an asset.
The social media editor manages Soliloquies online presence, through Facebook and Instagram. A knowledge of current social media trends, and an ability to post consistently are very important. Collaboration with the co-editors-in-chief, managing editor, and web content creators will be necessary. An ability to work quickly and meet deadlines is a must, and a commitment to around 5 hours of work a week will be required. Previous experience managing social media accounts is an asset.
The art director is responsible for creating all visuals behind Soliloquies, including posters, cover art and some social media content. The art director is also responsible for creating the lay-out of the two anthologies. The ability to use InDesign and Photoshop is a necessity. An ability to work quickly and meet deadlines is a must, and a commitment to around 5-10 hours of work a week will be required.
Responsibilities for all positions will begin the second week of September. The deadline to apply for all positions is September 7th, 2020 at 11:59pm EST. Please forward a CV, cover letter, and any further questions about the position to email@example.com. Please note that this is a volunteer position.
All meetings and operations, as well as interviews, will be held completely online until further notice.
Canlit has historically upheld systems of white supremacy, sexism, homophobia and bigotry, and Soliloquies as an extension of that community has a duty to dismantle and challenge those systems. We at Soliloquies are committed to uplifting the voices of those who have been, and continue to be, marginalized. That commitment must begin with our own staff.
All are encouraged to apply!
