Assistant Editor

Georgia Review

University of Georgia Libraries

The University of Georgia Libraries seeks an Assistant Editor for The Georgia Review. Reporting to the Editor of The Georgia Review, the Assistant Editor is responsible for performing high-quality editorial work dealing primarily with the screening and evaluating of manuscripts—poetry, short fiction, book reviews, and a wide range of interdisciplinary, literary, and personal essays.  A crucial function of this position is oversight of the journal’s book review section. This function involves identifying titles for review, planning and making review assignments, and working (in concert with the editor) with reviewers on manuscript revisions. Other responsibilities include: generating original website content; researching the accuracy of quotations and documentation in accepted nonfiction manuscripts; assisting with Georgia Review programs, such as lectures and readings; representing The Georgia Review occasionally at conferences or other literary events; overseeing graduate student assistants and/or undergraduate interns; and other editorial functions as assigned.  All work is performed with considerable independent judgment and leads, whenever appropriate, to written or verbal recommendations of action to the editor and/or other staff members. Some evening and weekend work required.

The Georgia Review was founded at the University of Georgia in 1947 and published here ever since. It has become one of America’s most highly regarded journals of arts and letters. Each quarterly issue offers a diverse, thoughtfully orchestrated gathering of short stories, general-interest essays, poems, reviews, and visual art. Pulitzer Prize winners and previously unpublished writers may find themselves side by side in the Georgia Review’s carefully designed and durable pages; works from the journal are regularly chosen for reprinting in the Pushcart Prize anthology and the entire gamut of the Best American series—including Poetry, Essays, and even Mystery Stories. The Georgia Review has been a finalist some twenty times in various categories of the National Magazine Awards—including General Excellence—and has won for Fiction and for Essays against such competition as the New Yorker, the Atlantic, Harper’s, and Smithsonian.
