Art Editor (Posted November 21st, applications open until position is filled)

Each month, VC features a visual artist of various mediums and uses their art throughout the issue and in social media publicity materials. The Art Editor is responsible for seeking out artists to feature as well as conducting interviews with the artist for publication.

We hope that the Art Editor will begin to work with VC in January 2023 following the publication of Issue 78. This is meant to be a long-term position, so please plan on staying for at least 6 months, if not longer.

To apply, please send the following to Alana at with ART EDITOR APPLICATION in the subject line:
      > a résumé
      > a brief cover letter (1-2 paragraphs) that includes the following: an introduction to yourself, an overview of any prior experience with literary journals, and an explanation of your interest in joining the VC team.
      > a quick list of 3 to 5 artists that you’re excited about right now with links to their social media.
