This means that we would also like to "hire" a book reviewer to be a part of the Vine Leaves Literary Journal team. This is a volunteer position, but you WILL receive the books for free. We ask that you review at LEAST ONE PER MONTH. If you want to review more than that, that's brilliant. The best bit? YOU get to choose the books you want to review from our Contributors' Books tab. We do ask that you be flexible with format, however, as not all books are available in every format under the sun. And if everything goes well, there is also a possibility of this turning into a paid position in the future.
Your reviews will be posted on our blog, though our Goodreads and Amazon accounts, and linked to via Twitter and Facebook (through the Vine Leaves accounts, and the Co-Publishers' accounts, which totals approx 15,000+ subscribers and followers). We will also feature it in a newsletter campaign, which currently has 600+ subscribers. So not only will we be promoting our contributors, but we will be promoting YOU, the REVIEWER, as a professional writer. A pretty great thing to have on your résumé, yes?
If you love to read a variety of forms, including poetry, vignettes, and short stories in varying genres, then we want to hear from you! Please express your interest by sending us an email. Applications will close at the end of September.
We're not going to tell you what to write in your application letter. You can tell us as little or as much as you wish, but please send us links to other reviews you've written so we can get a sense of your style and if you'd be a good fit for us.
We're very much looking forward to hearing from you!
Have a great weekend.
