Seeking Associate Editor, Poetry

Plenitude magazine is currently seeking an associate editor for poetry. The candidate will work with our west coast poetry editor to oversee the regular online publication of LGBTQ poetry.

Duties include:

  • Reviewing and responding to over-the-transom submissions
  • Soliciting poetry from established and emerging queer poets
  • Working with authors to develop and edit their poetry for publication
  • Coordinating with the managing editor to maintain the publishing schedule

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
  • Be an LGBTQ person

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.

To apply, send your résumé (as a Word document or PDF) and a cover letter to Kathleen Fraser at
