Job Openings at SLQ!

Want to work for all glory, but no pay? Have we got something for you!

SmokeLong Quarterly is looking to expand its staff. We are looking for a Staff Editor/Blogger and one or more Staff Readers to help us better contribute to the online indie publishing community and keep on top of the hundreds of submissions we receive each month.

Staff Editor/Blogger
We are looking for a Staff Editor/Blogger to write for our blog and web site (general news, occasional reviews, interviews, etc.) and read and comment on submissions for SmokeLong Quarterly. Unfortunately, we cannot pay, but the blogger/editor will be a full member of our editorial staff, be adored and loved by us, and have access to other writers, publishers and other good people.

Staff Reader
We are also looking for Staff Reader(s) to read and comment on submissions under consideration for our quarterly issues. Bonus: the time commitment here is less! We call on our readers occasionally to help us vote and decide on our favorite stories and hopefully give a different voice/viewpoint to our editorial process.

If you are interested in either of these, email us at and tell us a little about yourself and why you are interested in working with us. (If you want to be our blogger, also please tell us a little about what you'd like to write about.) Also send us a list of three stories that you really enjoyed in SLQ in the past year or so and why you liked them (this does not have to be extensive, just a little tidbit so we can get a sense of what types of stories appeal to you).

We'll be accepting applications, gifts, and goodwill until Sept. 1.
