As a #monster, you'll be a valued member of a small, tight-knit community of disabled women and nonbinary people. You'll get the chance to read and review submissions, contribute to the curation of blog content, spread the word of Monstering via social media, engage in conversation with both well-known and up-and-coming artists, and more! Above all, you'll be resisting erasure; you'll be centering voices that deserve to be heard, including your own; you'll be working to create a space for monsters to live, love, grow, and sing in.
Monstering is currently unable to pay its staff members. However, staff members are compensated with free eBook versions of Monstering's issues; their work is also promoted via Monstering's social media channels.
Applications are open indefinitely, and are restricted to disabled women and nonbinary people. Priority will be given to black applicants, indigenous applicants, and applicants of color. We value creativity, innovation, commitment, passion, energy, and experience, but really, we're just looking for heart.
