Shimmer: Help Wanted

I’m reposting from Beth Wodzinski, Shimmer’s editor-in-chief.  This is a great magazine to work with and a really fun team.  Plus, good parties at conventions.

Shimmer will be relaunching soon (just a few weeks!) with a new site design, some new staff, and a fantastic new issue. We need two more staffers to help get things off the ground: a slush reader, and a web assistant.

The slush reader will read an average of 1-2 submissions per day, and either reject them, or forward them for further consideration. I’m looking for someone who can be fast, friendly, and whose approach to stories is somewhat similar to mine.

Web assistant: Our site is based on WordPress. Our redesign will be done shortly, and we’ll need help moving our current content into the new layout, and maintaining it going forward. No programming or other heavy lifting required–just some skill with WordPress pages and posts.

We’re an all-volunteer staff, but fun to work with, and I’ll buy drinks if we’re ever at a con together. If you’re interested (or want more information), e-mail beth AT shimmerzine DOT com.

    I may be crazy, but I applied for this. I probably won’t get it, because it looks like they have several applicants, but I’ve read over and over again that aspiring writers should read slush. If it works out, it could be a good experience.

    Thanks for linking it!
