We’re looking for a new editor for our magazine!

Sad news: all-round fantastic person Annabel Brady Brown is stepping down from her role as Editor of our quarterly print magazine The Lifted Brow. As unhappy as we are to see her go, we’re excited to see what she achieves with her new-found time.

On a related note, we’re on the lookout for someone to replace her! The successful applicant will be editing The Lifted Brow alongside current editors Zoe Dzunko and Justin Wolfers.

For this role, we are looking for someone who ideally is:

  • based in Melbourne;
  • knowledgeable about The Lifted Brow in its current form and its history;
  • deeply interested in social and cultural issues, both large and small;
  • plugged into contemporary literature, arts and political conversations;
  • proactive and forward-thinking in their engagement with writers;
  • experienced in commissioning and editing;
  • experienced in print publishing;
  • self-motivating;
  • and very organised.
  • You will hopefully be able to come into the TLB office every Friday, which is the day when we all meet and work together – though this role also requires a level of day-to-day attention in order to keep on top of pitches, correspondence, edits, editorial planning and internal communication etc.

    Please note: this is a volunteer/unpaid position. All people who work at TLB are volunteers because currently there's simply not enough dollarydoos to go around once all our other costs are covered.

    We particularly encourage people who identify as queer and/or trans and/or of any race, colour, religion, gender, and/or ability (our office is a couple of floors up, but is accessible by two different elevators) or identify as having any kind of hindrance, to apply. There are no age limits.

    For more information about the role and to apply, check out our Submittable page. If you have any questions, you can contact us at info@theliftedbrow.com.

    Applications close midnight AEST Monday 30th April. Any queries can be directed to sam@theliftedbrow.com
