Great Lakes Review publishes fiction and poetry from and about the Great Lakes region of the United States and Canada, both in print annually and on a rolling basis digitally. We celebrate the diversity of experiences within the region and wish to publish work that truly showcases every nuance, nook, cranny, and person who either calls the Great Lakes home or who has been impacted by the region. If that’s you, send us your best work.
Social Media Co-Coordinator
Great Lakes Review is looking for a social media specialist to join its ranks as a social media co-coordinator. As a social media co-coordinator, you will:
· Demonstrate a strong command of written communication.
· Follow release dates and regular social media postings related to the journal agreed upon by the Managing Editor.
· Create social-first content that fosters meaningful engagement among Great Lakes Review contributors and readers.
· Use community management practices to connect and engage appropriately with social media followers, other journals, and Great Lakes-area institutions.
· Communicate virtually with the other social media co-coordinator and Managing Editor, mostly through email, regularly. In addition, if you will be “off the grid” and, therefore, out of reach for longer than a week, it will be expected that you’ll let the Managing Editor know in as advance as possible so that proper arrangements can be made in your absence.
Currently, all positions with the journal are volunteer. However, some perks to working with us here at Great Lakes Review include but are not limited to:
· First-hand experience working with a regional literary journal that has been around for more than a decade.
· A chance to collaborate with and meet other writers and editors.
· A chance to represent the journal at conferences in both The United States and Canada, where one can meet writers, editors, and publishers from around the world.
· An opportunity to be an integral part of introducing the best writing the region has to offer to a world of readers.
· A chance to influence new initiatives for an established literary journal.
The following are required for consideration of Social Media Co-Coordinator with Great Lakes Review and should be submitted as a single Word or PDF document arranged in this order:
· A resume or C.V. highlighting any relevant educational credentials as well as experience in social media management and community development.
· A one- to one-and-a-half-page single-spaced cover letter detailing your applicable experience and interests in working with Great Lakes Review.
