Associate Poetry Editor with Doubleback Review

At Doubleback Review, we believe art never dies. That’s why we only publish poems, stories, essays, and art that were previously published at journals that have gone defunct. Doubleback Review seeks an Associate Poetry Editor to review poetry submissions, then work with our Poetry Editor and Managing Editor to make the final selections for our twice-yearly publication.

This is a remote, unpaid volunteer position. Editing experience is preferred but not required. We want someone passionate about poetry, self-motivated, and a great communicator. If you’re interested, please send a short cover letter, your resume or CV, and a couple of writing samples (or links to published pieces) to Krista Cox at krista@doublebackreview.com.

Applications due December 15, 2021.
