UPDATE 3/25/19: We have filled the positions of Short Story Editor and Reviews Editor, but are still accepting applications for the nonfiction editor position.
Coffin Bell is in need of three new editors: a nonfiction editor, a short story editor, and a review editor. The duties and descriptions of these positions are as follows:
Nonfiction Editor: The Nonfiction Editor is responsible for reading all submissions in the Creative Nonfiction and Essay / Short Criticism categories, leaving comments on each submission, and casting votes via Submittable. Creative Nonfiction submissions have a turnaround time of eight weeks, whereas we allow three months to respond to Essay / Short Criticism submissions. Some social media posting required.
Short Story Editor: The Short Story Editor is responsible for reading 10-15 short stories per week, leaving comments on each submission, and casting a vote using Submittable. Some social media posting required.
Review Editor: The Review Editor is responsible for reading all Book Review submissions and casting votes via Submittable. Also, the Review Editor will read and review one book per month for the Coffin Bell blog. Some social media posting required.
Do you think any of the positions would be a good fit? If so, please send an email with resume attached to email@example.com, with the position you are applying for in the subject line. In the body of the email, please explain why you would like to come aboard as a Coffin Bell editor.
Submissions are now open for issue 2.4, slated for October 1, 2019, themed “Masquerade.” Elaborate facades or literal masks, we want work in which things are not as they seem. Submissions close on June 30, 2019. We look so forward to reading your work! Submit now!
The holidays are upon us, so we at Coffin Bell are thinking about evil, fear, and the dark. We hope you enjoy this selection of quotations from writers on these very topics, made beautifully into a collection of dark postcards designed by Coffin Bell’s Lindsey Turner.
Coffin Bell is thrilled to announce that our first print run of Coffin Bell ONE has arrived! We can’t wait to get them into the hands of readers and contributors. Shipments of contributor copies and ordered copies will be going out at the beginning of next week. We are beyond happy to see all this beautiful work come together in such a gorgeous collection (thanks to our extremely talented designer Lindsey Turner!).
We look forward to reading your reviews, seeing your pictures of Coffin Bell ONE in the wild, and most of all hope you enjoy reading the anthology as much as we enjoyed bringing it into existence.
