Soliloquies 25: Call for Co-Editor-in-Chief
Apply to work with us next year!
Soliloquies Anthology is seeking applicants for editors-in-chief for the 2020/2021 school year. Working together, the two EICs are responsible for managing all aspects of the literary journal, including: hiring and supervising content and media editors, event planning, publishing one journal per semester and the logistics of publication, budgeting, promotion, and website content. Soliloquies wants to continue engaging both with the international submissions it receives and with a variety of local artists and communities, so that students and writers have a strong platform to rely on for information, reviews, events, poetry, and prose.
The qualities we are looking for include:
Must be an undergraduate student at Concordia. Studying at least one subject (English, Creative Writing, Professional Writing) within the English department is desired, but not mandatory.
A strong command of the English language and literary genres, especially contemporary writing. Special interest and knowledge about writing and editing poetry is a bonus.
Previous editing experience in areas of poetry, prose, creative nonfiction, book and event reviews, social media promos, and/or opinion pieces.
Knowledge of a variety of Montreal literary communities and events, and a willingness to create connections within them.
Ability to organize and lead a group of about ten people. Must be organized and self-motivated, since the editors-in-chief are responsible for guiding the rest of the masthead.
Ability to collaborate with others. You will be sharing your position with another person, so conflict resolution and communication are necessary skills.
Able to work within a fast-paced environment, and able to adapt to new developments (i.e. deadlines, working around changing circumstances, publication errors, etc.)
A flexible school/work schedule is recommended.
Previous budgeting experience, or aptitude for numbers, is a bonus. If you are an English student, interested in running for CASE as the VP of Publications, to manage that budget and internal communication is also desired.
Event planning experience and interesting ideas for engaging Concordia students and the outside community.
Some responsibility for this position will begin in April, like hiring the rest of the masthead, however those hours will be flexible. By September, the position will require about 10 hours per week, ranging around the publication deadlines. The deadline to apply for co-editor-in-chief is March 13th 2020 at 11:59pm. 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.
