The ideal candidate will:
- Have a strong background in Canadian poetry
- Have professional editorial experience
- Be committed to diversity in publishing, to publishing work that breaks new ground, and to representing marginalized voices

Though we will consider all applications, we are particularly interested in hearing from BIPOC applicants, disabled applicants, and elders. Plenitude is a volunteer-run organization, but we offer an honorarium of $200 for a six-month term. The position requires a minimum of 5 hours per month and can be done from anywhere in Canada.
