Editor (freelance), Poetry Translation Centre
Deadline: Wed 12 Jun 2024
The Poetry Translation Centre is seeking a freelance Editor to join our small and dynamic team. This is an excellent opportunity for someone with experience of editing poetry and/or literature in translation, an international outlook and an entrepreneurial spirit.

We publish 2-3 World Poet Series titles per year. We also publish full-length single-author collections under our own imprint (one per year), and in March 2024 we published our first non-fiction title, Living in Language.

As our current Director and Editor steps down from the PTC, we are seeking a freelance Editor to commission, edit and produce our books, seeing them through from initial idea to publication. You will shape the PTC's list, ensuring it continues to showcase exceptional contemporary poetry from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. You will work closely with the PTC's Publishing Manager, feeding in to sales and promotion plans, and you will seek out opportunities for our poets e.g. placing their poems in magazines. You will lead on funding applications for translation grants and pursue other partnerships as required to support the publications programme.

You will be joining us at an exciting time as we celebrate 20 years of the PTC and think ahead to the next chapter of our organisation and our publishing.

The position is freelance, approximately 1.5 days per week (0.3 Full Time Equivalent or FTE) and can be done remotely or at the PTC's office at the Albany art centre in Deptford, south London.
