After 10 years, founding partner Robert Wynne is leaving Cider Press Review to pursue other projects. His contributions to the press will be difficult to replace, so in consequence, Cider Press Review is looking for two new Associate Editors, an Associate Poetry Editor who will be primarily responsible for the annual journal, and an Associate Book Editor who will focus on our annual Book Award. Cider Press publishes only poetry. See samples online at www.ciderpressreview.com.
CPR is looking for editors with discernment to complement the existing editorial slant of Cider Press Review. Candidates should have extensive knowledge of contemporary poetry, some experience with journal publication, and exceptional proofreading skills. The ideal candidate will also have contacts among contemporary writers and excellent people skills. Both positions are part-time volunteer/mast-head only, though there is a possibility of a small stipend in future.
Since its inception, Cider Press Review has functioned in a virtual workspace. Editors can live and work anywhere provided they have reliable internet access and sufficient computer skills to share manuscript files and communicate with the Managing Editor. No advanced technical skills, either with book production or computer programming, are required.
Anyone interested in being considered for these positions or more information, please email caron [at] ciderpressreview.com. If possible, I would like to set up phone meetings before AWP (Feb. 11-15, 2009).
