Let's get started.
sub-Q is currently seeking:
First readers are a core part of sub-Q’s editorial team, reading new submissions from authors and giving them an up-vote or down-vote, with any thoughts they might have. Submissions which receive enough up-votes are passed along to our editors. Being a first reader is a great way to see what others are doing with interactive fiction, and to learn what makes a piece of IF successful–and what doesn’t.
Currently, sub-Q has several open submission periods a year of about a month each. During these periods, first readers:
- Play through anonymized submissions
- Leave comments for the editors about submissions
- Vote submissions up or down
All submissions are handled anonymously through our Submittable account. Because our submission process is anonymous, first readers are still eligible to submit to the magazine.
- Manage our Patreon
- Organize and deliver subscriber benefits
- Coordinate other fundraising opportunities as they arise
Interested? Email your experience, goals, and questions to email@example.com with the subject line POSITION QUERY: [your position of interest].
Positions with sub-Q are unpaid. Commitment hours and alternative compensation can be discussed.
