Senior Nonfiction Editor

Guernica is seeking a senior nonfiction editor to join its all-volunteer team. Working closely with other senior staff, this is an opportunity for someone with editorial experience and wide-ranging curiosity to help shape Guernica’s signature long-form publishing. Primary job responsibilities are as follows:

1. Produce at least one long-form feature / interview and approximately two shorter, timelier nonfiction pieces per month. This entails generating ideas for pieces, authors of interest, interviewers, and interview subjects; soliciting and vetting pitches and submissions; and engaging in a rigorous editorial process with writers to develop work in line with the standards of the magazine.

2. Cultivate relationships with writers and interviewers through publishers, publicists, events, and organizations of interest. Maintain pulse on political and social issues, as well as literary and artistic happenings (book releases, museum exhibitions), to encourage content that is timely and relevant.

3. Engage in a mentorship program which involves being paired with and shadowed by a Guernica fellow.

Significant experience editing and writing for magazines, newspapers, and/or literary journals is required, as is a strong interest in global social and political issues, the creative arts, and the perspectives of underrepresented populations.

Guernica seeks motivated team players, eager to help diversify and strengthen its nonfiction section, as well as the magazine as a whole. All staff members are expected to attend bi-monthly editorial meetings, held in New York City.

Guernica is a volunteer-driven publication and all editorial positions are unpaid.

Please send resume and cover letter here by June 15.
