EcoTheo Review seeks a fiction editor to help us fulfill our mission of enlivening conversations and commitments around ecology, spirituality, and art. We are a quarterly print and online magazine that publishes original fiction, essays, poetry, and visual art, as well as interviews and book reviews of work that explores intersections of nature and the divine from within and outside all religious traditions. We are delighted by art that reflects our values of curiosity, justice, and community. You will join the all-volunteer staff of an organization that is growing in circulation and budget. We hope all editorial positions will become stipendiary within a year.
This position would involve: reading and responding to fiction submissions; regular attendance of monthly virtual meetings; correspondence and engagement with the rest of the editorial team; willingness to promote the work of EcoTheo online and as possible represent the magazine at conferences; building relationships with contributors and advancing the overall mission of the magazine.
You might be right for this position if you possess some of the following qualities:
Love of literature and familiarity with a range of contemporary writing
Passion for our mission and eagerness to help the organization grow
Personal spiritual practice(s)
Commitment to ecological care
Commitment to social justice
MFA in Fiction or equivalent combination of study and involvement in literary community
Strong preference given to BIPOC applicants
