Orson's Review Poetry Editor

You’re no stranger to verse. And you know exactly what it feels like to be a poet submitting their work to editors they’ve never met. 

Additionally, you have prior editorial experience and are comfortable with the push-pull nature of the poet-editor relationship. You’re someone who can set the tone for the Poetry arm of Orson’s Review, for any given issue, and as a whole. 

Orson’s Review is a young but growing literary journal whose current aim is to publish one annual issue, digitally. That aim is subject to change, however, depending upon team size and submission rate. 

If you believe you’re the best candidate for this part-time role, we’d love to hear from you.
