Assistant Editor Needed


Broad! is seeking an assistant editor.  Our current assistant editor, the excellent Emma Needleman, will be pursuing a Ph.D program in the fall.  Congratulations and best of luck, Emma!

Job duties and responsibilities include reading through submissions and assisting me in the review process.  Must be available for editorial meetings, whether in-person or via Skype.  (Telecommuting is workable, though not preferred.)  Occasionally, you may be asked to assist on layout.  

This position is unpaid.  Broad! does not bring in enough money (read: any) that we can afford to pay our staff.


  • Some post-secondary education (though not, necessarily, a full Bachelor’s)
  • Interest in literature
  • Interest in feminism and gender or queer studies
  • Editing experience
  • Strong writing skills
  • Familiarity with desktop publishing software (e.g. Scribus, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Pagemaker)*
  • Self-motivated

Interested applicants should please send a cover letter to Heather Lefebvre at broadzine [at] gmail [dot] com.  If you sound like a good fit for us, we will contact you to set up an interview.

*Broad! currently uses Scribus, an open-source software application, for its layout.  Scribus is available off its website as a free download for Windows or Mac.  I can train someone on the software if needed.
