Seeking Editorial Assistants for TSLR

Editorial Assistant Internship

The Shanghai Literary Review is seeking Editorial Assistants.

For this role, the EA will work in all areas of the magazine, from editorial to marketing. Some responsibilities include: reading and voting on submissions, shadow editing 1-2 pieces with an Editor in a category of interest for the upcoming issue, organizing contributor information, joining in team events and meetings, helping to sell TSLR at festivals and open mic nights, proofreading, selling magazines to stockists, gathering information on the indie magazine market and indie culture conferences. 

EAs will be added to the website masthead for the duration of their internship, and for any print issues worked on will be added to the issue’s masthead as Editorial Assistant. 

The time commitment for the internship is 5 hours a week from September 2017 to early January 2018 (the duration of work for Issue Two). Work can be done from home, with weekly check-ins with the Editorial team and video/in-person meetings about 1-2x/month. 

As we are an independent magazine, the internship is unfortunately unpaid at this time. Each intern will receive a free copy of the magazine in which they are listed, and will be able to buy additional copies at discount. 

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and a list of five of your favorite books, to shanghailiterary@gmail.com by September 15, 2017.
