We’re Hiring!

Shoot-for-the-Moon is now looking for two Editors, & one Assistant to run the day-to-day operations of our new publishing company, and to manage the Spark, Echo & Nova Literary awards. After extensive consultation, I’ve decided that it’s important to have Co-Editors who will manage the company equally.

One Editor will focus on prose, the other on poetry.

Starting salary will be $50,000.00 + bonuses.

I was going to put up a comprehensive job description, but I’ve decided that I want you to determine what your job is going to be. As we expand operations and become a publishing company, what kind of job do you want? How do you see this job taking shape?

Your application will include a description of what you believe your responsibilities should be considering the salary you’re being paid. Each Editor will be making decisions as to who and what to publish. You will also be working together on managing the literary awards.

I want you to start with those core responsibilities, and describe to me how you see the future of this company taking shape, and talk to me about the role you wish to play.

You will submit the following:

  • A resume/cv + cover letter

  • A comprehensive job description

  • Five Writing Samples

I encourage you to ask as many questions as you like before you submit your job description, so feel free to email me at rahim@shootforthemoon.art. This is a different way of approaching the hiring process, but it helps me hire the right persons for these two jobs, if I can get an idea of what vision you have to building a publishing company.

Deadline for application is December 15th, 2018.

As mentioned, we’re also looking for one Assistant to the Editors.

Starting Salary will be $30,000.00 + bonuses.

This role will be a little different. You’re going to be working with me as much as you are working with the Editors (I’ll require assistance on the fundraising side of things for ‘Here’) You will also submit a resume/cv + cover letter, five writing samples, and a job description. If you believe you’re not ready to take on the responsibility of being an Editor, this is a good way to grow into such a position for the future.

I encourage anyone who is looking to apply for this role to speak with me about it at rahim@shootforthemoon.art. Knowing the compensation, what do you believe should be the responsibilities for this role?

Deadline for application is December 15th, 2018.

In terms of hiring, I encourage QT2S/BIPOC/Queer Women/Femmes/Trans/Non Binary & Disabled individuals to apply. If you’ve read about the Spark/Echo/Nova awards, I think you can get a clear understanding of what kind of company I want this to be, and that is the kind that amplifies the voices of individuals who haven’t been given the opportunity to be running a publishing company.

This is your chance.

Once again, if you have any questions, or wish to submit your application for employment, email me at rahim@shootforthemoon.art.

(Oh, and you don’t have to live in Toronto to be one of the Editors, although it would be quite helpful) I won’t hold distance against you whatsoever. If you’re the best candidate for the job, we’ll make it work.

Cheers,

R.
