Calling  All  Literary  and  Visual  Arts  Editors

If you want to be a part of the excitement and help the new Loose Change grow, join our editorial team! We are now accepting letters of interest from talented and committed editors through our Submittable page. We are interested in publishing ambitious, progressive-minded, engaged and engaging work that comes out of various traditions and moves them forward, honoring by reinventing them or critiquing and exploding them. We want familiar modes made new and emergent forms that renew us. Other journals whose editorial vision we admire include American Letters & Commentary, Chicago Review, Conjunctions, Fence, Indiana Review, and jubilat, to name only a few.

If you’re a writer or experienced advocate of such work and would be excited to join our efforts, we would be delighted to receive your application for a position with our new editorial team. If you are an experienced creative writer and/or editor (or visual artist or arts curator) in Atlanta, and would be able to offer time and energy to reviewing and evaluating submissions, attend occasional meetings, and help contribute periodically to our Community/Events page with events listings, feature articles, interviews, and the like, we welcome your interest. As with the vast majority of literary journals, Loose Change is a labor of love, and we are unable to pay staff at this time.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until all positions are filled.
