The Proximity editorial team has decided to launch a new editorial fellowship program for readers, writers, and students seeking editorial experience with a literary magazine. Preference will be given to graduate students in creative writing, journalism, and editing programs, though others are encouraged to apply. This is an open application call for a virtual position with no deadline, but rather a rolling application process. Moving forward, each issue's editor will peruse the vault of applicants and select one fellow for that issue. Each fellow will commit to working with an issue editor for a minimum of three months. Fellows will be acknowledged on our masthead as an Editorial Assistant for that issue and assist with a wide-ranging set of tasks (reading submissions, social media marketing, final copy edits, coordinating with contributors, etc. -- no coffee fetching or copy machines here!). Each editor-assistant-editor relationship will differ in time commitment and tasks.

[[ ADDITION: Proximity's Managing Editor is looking for an assistant to help with some administrative duties, to assist our teams by reading each quarter's editorial book (the text of the issue before it goes into layout), and to organize the layout and image placement process (under the guidance of each issue's editor).This position would require a 12 month commitment. And, just to remind you: we're a 100% volunteer editorial team. If this interests you and you have previous experience editing images and using Wordpress, please complete our application here and note your interest in this position -- starting this fall (2017). ]]
