Are you passionate about fictional worlds? Do you enjoy helping others express themselves? 

Cold Open Stories is looking for an intrepid volunteer editor from the Warhammer community to join its team. This individual would be essential in helping aspiring authors develop their skills, all while gaining experience in producing high-quality entertainment for others. Past editors for Cold Open Stories have gone on to work for mainstream publishing companies, including Black Library / White Dwarf in the United Kingdom. 

Applicants must have a proficient understanding of English grammar, spelling, and punctuation (Oxford University Style Guide) and would be available for two key responsibilities: 

  • Bi-monthly: Reading and judging submissions for the Unofficial Warhammer 40,000 Fast Fiction Contest (approximately 5-8 hours of time)
  • Quarterly: Assignment to edit a small number of Unofficial Warhammer 40,000 short stories, working in collaboration with authors, in preparation for the quarterly anthology (time varies based on number of stories).
