Uncanny Magazine is currently seeking to add more Submissions Editors (often called slush readers). Uncanny is an online magazine that publishes Science Fiction and Fantasy and pays $.08 per word for new fiction. Our submission guidelines are here.
We will ask Submissions Editors to select unique and provocative, diverse, well-written stories from our unsolicited submissions for the Editors-in-Chief to consider for publication. Each Submission Editor will be responsible for reading about 30-60 stories per month on the Moksha system. (We try to respond within 10 days to submissions.) This is an unpaid volunteer position, and you will be unable to submit stories or poems to Uncanny if you are chosen. If you’re curious about how this process works, here is an excellent post by Sigrid Ellis on the subject.
If you’re interested in joining Team Space Unicorn, please fill out our Submission Editor application form. We will be accepting applications until July 29 at 11:59 PM CDT.
