We're seeking a new visual arts editor to join our team! Apply via this Google Form by September 30, 2020.
Responsibilities for this position primarily focus on publishing one visual art feature every first Friday of the month in our online journal. This monthly spot is filled through the selection of visual art submissions during open reading periods and solicitation during off-months, and we strongly suggest a mix of both approaches.
Other responsibilities include:
Outreach to visual arts communities during open reading periods
Helping our events team book visual artists to showcase work at our Episodes Reading Series
Selection of visual artists to be re-published in our anthologies
Selection of previous visual art contributors to be nominated for awards
Whenever appropriate, bringing recommendations and ideas to our administrative team to improve our journal's efforts in bringing the visual arts and literary communities together
We're looking for individuals who demonstrate experience in curatorial work, interest in independent literary and arts publishing, and eagerness to work with our small team of bitches and rascals. Please familiarize yourself with our editorial style, including our publications and social media pages, prior to applying. Previous contributors are strongly encouraged to apply.
This is a volunteer position. Time commitment is estimated at 1hr/week during most months of the year, and 2hr/week during open reading periods (2-3 months/year). We have experience working with colleges, universities, and other institutions on claiming your work with Peach Mag as college credit.
The deadline to apply is September 30, 2020. Individuals selected to move on to the next round of consideration (i.e., interviews) will be notified in October. We expect to bring on the new visual arts editor later this fall.
We ask that applicants submit external links and/or samples of their work so we can better get a sense for your artistic style, curatorial background, etc. Ideally, the work mentioned in the "Relevant Experience" section of the application should be illustrated here.
Please do not overthink the "Why do you want to work with us?" question. We're not looking for a cover letter, just a general sense of your interests and ambitions so that we can make sure this is a good fit on both ends.
