Help Wanted!

Lovely CC Friends:

Cease, Cows is looking for some new flash fiction readers to join our editorial staff. If you like what you read on our site, consider becoming part of the team. While no publishing or editorial experience is required, you should be a regular reader of flash fiction with an appreciation for Cease, Cows’ preference for the imaginative, the quirky, the dark, and the sublime. In this role, you’ll be expected to read and vote on approximately 10-15 submissions per week during our open submission periods; readers also provide brief comments on each submission supporting their Yes/No vote in Submittable. Time Commitment: 1-2 hours per week.

This is a volunteer position offering no pay at this time, (all staff members at Cease, Cows are volunteers.) However, if you’re a writer of flash fiction, you’ll find that reading submissions with a careful editorial eye will help you become a better editor of your own work, and whether you’re a writer or not, you’ll also share in the excitement of finding and publishing some amazing flash fiction. Giving your time and effort to a literary journal is a great way to practice good literary citizenship.

If interested, send a brief Introduction to, including why you want to join the team, your experience as a reader/writer, your favorite authors, and the name of one story published by Cease, Cows that you either loved or hated. (Be sure to tell us why you loved or hated it.) Applications will be reviewed over the next few weeks.

We hope you’ll consider joining the team!
