Two Guernica Nonfiction Readers Wanted

Guernica is currently accepting applications for two nonfiction readers. The position is temporary, lasting until September 2020.

Readers are expected to read at least 50 submissions per month, make recommendations on pieces, and keep in regular contact with editors. Because we are an all-volunteer publication, readers are unpaid.

Guernica welcomes you to attend our regular editorial meetings in NYC, but living in New York City (or the US) is not required. Readers are also encouraged to pitch nonfiction to Guernica.

LGBTQ+ applicants, minorities, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply — and we welcome your point of view in all stories we choose to publish. We want to learn from you, so your opinion is valued.

If you are interested in applying for the readership, please submit a cover letter, short writing sample, and résumé to ed at guernicamag dot com no later than March 15, 2019.
