Nouvella is looking for a reader!
Hello, you lovely, discerning readers out there. We’re on the hunt for one or two super sharp readers to help us tame our slush pile and scout for new authors of innovative, contemporary novellas. This is a work from home position, about five hours a week that are entirely flexible based on your schedule. It is, unfortunately, not paid, but you do get some cool perks like your name on the masthead, weekly staff emails that ooze with morale boosting language, and drinks on us if you’re in the LA or San Francisco areas. We make it a point to know where the best bars are, so this is not a perk to be sneezed at.
If you’re interested, send us an email at editors [at] nouvellabooks [dot] com with your resume and a short cover letter in the body of the email. We hope to hear from you!

Last call! We’re not considering any applications after Wednesday. Get your resumes in!
