Calls for volunteers will be posted on this page. If there are no positions listed, please follow our Twitter account (@khoreomag) or sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page to hear about our next call for applicants!
We are currently looking only for volunteers; however, we aim to begin paying our volunteers at least token amounts by Year 3. More updates as the magazine evolves.
We are looking for 1-2 individuals who can join our copy editing team. Applicants should…
- Be passionate about speculative fiction and copy editing! Professional experience is welcome, but not necessary
- Have familiarity with (and ideally access to) the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style
- Be open to working in an asynchronous, collaborative environment with fiction editors, authors, and other copy editors
- Be comfortable with Slack and Google Docs, or willing to learn these platforms
Stories are edited on a quarterly basis, with each story receiving two editorial passes from two separate copy editors and a one-month timeline to complete both copy edits. With a larger team of copy editors, each editor will have fewer stories to review (three editors: four stories each; four editors: three stories each; etc.) as well as providing backup in case of personal emergencies.
Please note that khōréō is a volunteer-run organization; this is an unpaid position.
Please email [email protected] with a resume, statement of interest (including details of experience, copy editing philosophy, languages (e.g., American English, British English, Jamaican Patois, etc., etc.)) and why you’d like to volunteer with khōréō.
Please note: this is a leadership position at the magazine. As such, we especially encourage individuals who identify as immigrants or members of a diaspora, and especially BIPOC, to apply for this position.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
