Help Wanted

juice, the journal of Creative Writing by and for University of Winnipeg students, needs one Student Editor, one Assistant Student Editor, and one Intern to help with production of issue # 20.

We need reliable, responsible undergraduate University of Winnipeg students with a strong commitment to the goal of producing a quality journal on time. The successful candidates must have excellent communication skills (both written and spoken); a literary background (e.g. course work in English); strong editorial skills (punctuation and grammar); basic computer skills (e-mail, word-processing, scanning, social media, and website maintenance); and the ability to see a project through from beginning to end. Experience with desktop publishing programs Adobe InDesign and Photoshop 6.0 would be an asset.

The position involves working with the editorial team and volunteers of juice, soliciting, reading, and evaluating student submissions; copy-editing the chosen submissions; communicating effectively with student writers; type-setting the journal; co-ordinating the printing; and organizing events on campus, including the launch. The position also includes office tasks (preparing mail-outs, photocopying), planning editorial meetings, and promoting the journal on campus by visiting classrooms and hosting open mics.

The hourly wage is based on education and experience. The time commitment will be an average of three hours per week from Fall, 2019 until the launch of the completed issue (planned for October, 2020). Hours will vary according to the time of year and tasks underway.

This position provides the opportunity to learn about how literary magazines are produced.

Interested candidates should submit a letter of application, a resumé, and the names of three persons who may be contacted for references. Please highlight relevant experience or education. Send applications, on paper, to Catherine Hunter c/o the UW Department of English.
