Open: Screeners, Fiction Reader

These are remote, volunteer, unpaid positions. Readers and screeners actively help curate the voice of Five South. Come join our fun team. You must be able to commit to at least six months and be over the age of 18. We’re a flexible, inclusive work environment. Bring your enthusiasm for literature and your willingness to learn. Ideally, you're already familiar with Five South. If not, please take a look. Read our mission statement. Follow us on Twitter and get to know our vibe. Five South aims to be a no-stress environment. We want this to be fun and we want you to get something out of it.



Our positions do not qualify for college credit. However, if you are still in school and would like to include this as part of your work study program, we’re happy to discuss with your teachers and school and fill out the necessary paperwork.



  • Submit your application and cover letter below.

  • Please keep cover letters brief (1–2 paragraphs).


In your cover letter, include:

  • Two literary journals or magazines you read on a regular basis.

  • Tell us who you are, what you're about. We're not your average journal and we don't want the average resume. Do you stand out? Tell us why.

  • Tell us one thing you're most proud of.
