Winter Tangerine’s staff is composed of folks who approach their work with initiative and self-motivation; there is a large degree of both creative liberty and personal responsibility within our working environment. Within the WT ecosystem, we work collaboratively towards a collective vision and mission.

This page is updated as needed -- any position listed on this page is still open for applications. Due to capacity, we are only able contact applicants we are interested in moving forward with. All Winter Tangerine positions are based entirely online/remote.

ASSOCIATE EDITORS

We are currently seeking an Associate Prose Editor and an Associate Poetry Editor to join our small editorial team. We are seeking folks with editorial experience in a literary context, who resonate with our mission to expand publishing by challenging traditional literary canons. Associate Editors work closely with our editorial team to curate our biannual issues, communicate with contributors on edits, and manage our submission queues and readership teams. We look for an ability to critically analyze literary work, a distinct, electric creative voice, and a commitment to community. Associate Editors must be able to work independently reliably, and follow through on commitments; Winter Tangerine staff is composed of people who approach their work with initiative and self-motivation. Associate Editors should hold a high standard of excellence in their editorial practice, have an understanding of literary form and narrative, and be eager to welcome new ways of navigating and contributing to contemporary literary dialogue. We are pleased to offer modest honorariums to our Associate Editors.

To apply to either role, please send a resume, a writing sample, and a cover letter detailing why you're interested in working with us & why you’re a good fit.
