Jurors needed: The Speculative Literature Foundation is looking for additional volunteer jurors willing to read roughly 75-100 applications (a few pages each, including application writing sample), over the space of about a month for our Working Class/Impoverished Writers Grant. Jurors should be writers / editors / teachers /etc. who are capable of judging literary quality in a work.

If interested, please send a brief note to managing_dir@speclit.org, with the subject line: JUROR. Include a paragraph or so on what your qualifying background would be for serving as a juror. If you have a preference for which jury you serve on, please note it, as we also offer three other grants which will need jurors next yearthe Older Writers Grant, the Travel Grant and the Diverse Writers and Diverse Worlds Grants.

The SLF is currently entirely volunteer-staffed, so jurors won't be paid; all of our funds go directly to program support. But you would be doing a service to the field, and can, of course, list it on resumes and C.V.'s.

Thank you!
