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 an individual who can manage our Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, including, but not limited to:

  • Announcing calls for submissions
  • Announcing new publications
  • Sharing the successes of khōréō family
  • Engaging with the writing community

This individual will work closely with the Director of Marketing; if one is not yet hired by the time this position is filled, they will instead work closely with the Editor-in-Chief. 

To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume to contact@khoreomag.com. Prior experience is not required. 

Please note: this is a leadership position at the magazine. As such, we are considering only individuals who identify as immigrants or members of a diaspora for this position. We especially encourage BIPOC to apply.

We are looking for an Art Director who can:

  • Maintain our portfolio of writers for future covers
  • Work with the Editor-in-Chief to select cover artists 
  • Manage the development process for cover art
  • Assist/drive magazine layout for publication
  • Make design/branding suggestions 

To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume as well as three examples of cover art/story illustrations you think could be a good fit for khōréō to contact@khoreomag.com

Please note: this is a leadership position at the magazine. As such, we are considering only individuals who identify as immigrants or members of a diaspora for this position. We especially encourage BIPOC to apply.

We are looking for an individual who can support our Audio Director in producing story recordings for our website and podcast. Responsibilities will include:

  • Reading stories selected for publication and making casting decisions based on the story’s needs
  • Liaising with authors about their narration requirements, pronunciation, etc.
  • Drafting voice actor briefs 
  • Producing audio, including initial editing and pick-ups 
  • Collaborating and knowledge-sharing with other departments, particularly editorial and marketing
  • Some admin, including maintaining the voice actor roster, drafting communications, uploading files and metadata etc.

Production typically occurs on a 3-4 month schedule, with one story releasing every two weeks. Our Assistant Audio Director should expect to put in 5-10 hours per week on average, with some variation based on where in the production timeline we are. After initial onboarding/ramp-up, the Assistant Audio Director will take the lead on producing ~2-3 of our six published works per issue. Issues are published once a quarter, on the 15th of every February, May, August, and November.

While we prefer a candidate with technical production experience, especially in short fiction, the softer skills of this role (communications, casting, providing guidance) are critical. 

Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis; we request applications be submitted by August 31st, 2021, but we may close the process sooner if we find the right candidate in order to give them as much ramp-up time as possible.

khōréō is a volunteer organization.
