Call for Applications: Fiction Editor and Creative Nonfiction Editor

carte blanche, founded in 2004, is the official online magazine of the Quebec Writers’ Federation. We are celebrating over 15 years of promoting poetry, creative nonfiction, comics, translation, photography, fiction, and literary commentary from Quebec, Canada, and around the world. With ongoing support from the Canada Council of the Arts and private donations, carte blanche is able to pay all of its contributors, and maintains a dynamic and unique niche online.

Currently, carte blanche is seeking two enthusiastic members to join the editorial team: a Fiction Editor and a Creative Nonfiction Editor.

Both editorial positions work independently and in collaboration with the editorial team to help steer the magazine forward. The successful candidates would lead the fiction or creative nonfiction sections of carte blanche for three issues per year (winter, spring/summer, and fall). Their responsibilities would include evaluating all fiction or creative nonfiction submissions received, organizing submissions, and responding to artists through Submittable.

The positions receive a modest annual stipend. It is an ideal position for any individual not depending on it for a full-time living, but nevertheless committed to contributing to and being part of a flourishing community online.


carte blanche, as affiliated with the QWF, actively seeks to maximize diversity in its staff, part-time employees, membership, and board of directors. We welcome applications from all qualified individuals, and encourage Indigenous persons, persons of colour, LGBTQ+ and gender-nonconforming persons, persons with disabilities, women, and members of any other marginalized group to self‐identify if they are comfortable doing so.
