We are looking for a handful of new first round poetry readers to help us keep up with our growing submission pool. Muzzle publishes two online issues a year and uses Submittable to manage submissions. Muzzle is 100% volunteer run. If you are interested in applying to work with our staff, please send a brief cover letter explaining your experience and interest and a 10-page poetry sample to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, February 8th. Please put "Poetry Reader Application" in the email subject line. It's our goal to never be homogenous in taste; we are looking for readers who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and aesthetic traditions. The main considerations will be 1) poetry sample 2) reasons for wanting to volunteer with a literary magazine (particularly this one) and 3) literary citizenship. Some familiarity with Submittable is preferred. Bonus points if you are familiar with Weebly and might be willing to web edit a few poems per issue (but that is definitely not a key requirement).
