Now that the new site is online and fully operational, we’d like to begin our search for a long-term book reviewer to join the staff. Ideally, he or she will be comfortable reviewing prose and poetry releases, and will review at least one book per month, though more are encouraged. While there’s no monetary compensation, the reviewer will receive a complimentary copy of every book they review, and everything decomP ever publishes. Also, we firmly believe that reviews should mention positive and negative qualities of the book in question. Needless to say, reviews will and should only appear in decomP. Interested? We hope so.
Here’s what we’d like embedded in an e-mail to us at email@example.com:
1. A short bio with contact info
2. A review of a book you like and a review of a book you don’t like (links are fine if they’re published somewhere; if they aren’t, embed ’em), and each should be 300-500 words
3. Why you think you’re qualified for the position and why you want it
Please apply by April 1, 2010. We hope to notify applicants by May, if not sooner, but watch the blog for the latest news.
