If you are interested in being a slush reader for Clarkesworld Magazine, I highly recommend that you fill out our application. When a vacancy opens, we consider/reconsider every application turned in during the last year before soliciting new applications on social media. Quite often these positions are filled from existing applications.
A few notes:
- This is an unpaid volunteer position.
- Slush readers & other staff are prohibited from submitting stories or articles to the magazine.
- You should have time to read an average of five stories a day. (You can stop reading a story when it’s clear that we shouldn’t publish it.)
- Priority is given to writers and those considering becoming an editor.
A version of this post is reblogged every year or so with minor changes.
