Since 2013 Bare Fiction has published 318 writers in 11 issues, 2 full poetry collections, and 2 poetry pamphlets. After five years going solo, it’s time to develop an exciting team that will take Bare Fiction forward.

I’m creating some new positions and I want to fill them with people like you. People who want to volunteer to help ensure that Bare Fiction continues to grow in its support of writers and new writing.

If you think you'd like to help make that happen please check out the opportunities below and consider making an application today.

Bare Fiction encourages applications from women, BAME, disabled, LGBTQ and other under-represented groups. Please apply and help me make a difference.

Deadline: August 31st 2018
