Since the beginning, Empty Mirror has been edited only by me, in between my day job and family responsibilities.
The increased volume of poetry submissions and the desire to collaborate with others has led me to the decision to grow the Empty Mirror team.
I’d like to add a poetry reader or two, and, possibly — if the right person should apply — an associate editor.
Please note that these are volunteer positions.
Poetry readers will be assigned several submissions to read every week, and will give feedback on whether they consider the submitted work to be suitable for Empty Mirror. The time commitment is flexible, up to a couple of hours per week.
To apply, please send an email detailing why you would like to read for Empty Mirror, a little bit about the kinds of poetry you’d like to see us publish, and noting any previous experience as a poetry reader or editor. (Experience isn’t necessary.)
I’m looking for someone who’s familiar with Empty Mirror and has ideas for its development.
Please also have:
– a passion for contemporary poetry and literature
– an active presence in the literary community
– a positive attitude
Familiarity with WordPress is helpful, but not required.
The time commitment is very flexible, likely a few hours per week, as needed.
To apply, please send me an email introducing yourself, explaining why you’d like to be considered, and sharing your vision for Empty Mirror. A formal cover letter or resume isn’t needed.
