Our office manager of fourteen years, Janna Gies, retired in December and we’re looking for someone enthralled by the hectic, fast-paced world of literary journals to come work with us. So if you’re looking for a job that’s part “His Girl Friday” and “All the President’s Men,” look no further.
Well, it’s not really that fast-paced. But we do offer a casual and friendly office, flexible hours, and engaging coworkers, all in the service of helping put out what we think is one of the best little magazines around. The position is part-time (25–30 hours per week) and we’re looking for someone who’s organized, personable, and preferably has some experience with bookkeeping or accounting. Past experience in the magazine or publishing world is helpful (but this is not an editorial position). Our office is located on the historic central grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, less than fifty yards from the Rotunda.
If you’re interested, there’s more info and instructions on how to apply at the Jobs@UVA website. (Please note that applications have to be done online through the Jobs@UVA website; don’t send applications to our office.) General questions about the position can be emailed to the editors (no phone calls, please).
