The Fictional Café, an online arts ‘zine, was established in 2013 and has steadily grown in popularity. Today, we have over 900 Coffee Club members in 64 countries. We publish fine arts exhibits, fiction, poetry, and podcasts, along with more occasional reviews, commentaries and interviews, each month.
As of March 1, we have an opening for our Fine Arts Barista. In this unpaid volunteer position, your role is assessing incoming art submissions for possible publication, as well as reaching out to art communities to invite artists to submit their work. You recommend exhibits to the editorial board and once approved, curate the artist’s works in publishable format with descriptions of each work, an Artist’s Statement, the artist’s bio and (optional) photograph. We strive to publish a Fine Arts exhibit once a month. Please review what we have published on our website, www.fictionalcafe.com.
If you’re interested, please reply to me at [email protected]. Type “Fine Arts Barista – NP” in the subject line. Please describe yourself, your artistic interests and how you feel you might fit in with our baristas and our community. The editorial board will begin interviews the last week of February. We extend a three-month trial period for new baristas; if we are all agreed on moving forward together, you’ll be introduced on our website and be given your own business cards and a Fictional Café Microsoft Office 365 account.
