Assistant Reader

We are looking for a motivated individual willing to assist our executive reader, Zoe Fairtlough, with reading for our monthly issues. Although much of the work focuses on making sure that the stylistic choices (e.g. grammar, spelling) are accurate and consistent across the magazine, you will also have an opportunity to make editorial suggestions, as well as to collaborate directly with the authors, if you so wish.


  • Read 10-15 pieces per month, spread across multiple different forms and genres. E.g. Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction and Poetry.
  • Collaborate directly with our executive reader, as well as with the editors of our monthly issues and weekly columns.
  • Participate in a 1-hour call every month with the rest of the editorial team.

Application Requirements

  • A brief CV (1-2 sides).
  • A short motivation letter (200-300) outlining what drew you to the magazine, as well as any other experience that might be relevant to the role.
