The StoryGraph Needs You!

UPDATE 30th JAN: We are currently not accepting any new applications for this role. We may reopen for applications in the near future. Please get in touch if you have any questions at [email protected]. Thank you.


The StoryGraph is an exciting online space celebrating the creative writing of university students around the world. We look for original, inventive pieces that still appeal to a wide audience. Every main story that we publish is accompanied with artwork that the artist has drawn after reading the chosen piece. This combination of writing and art makes The StoryGraph a unique reading experience for all.


Currently, the team consists of the two founders and one main editor. We are looking for a team of sub-editors to join us and enable us to continue publishing top-quality material.


If you love creative writing, maybe write a bit yourself, and have a few hours spare each week, then this could be the role for you. We cannot offer any payment, but you’ll be part of an exciting project that we hope to take to greater places in the future. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a career in fiction or the publishing industry!


What do you need to be able to do?


First and foremost, you need to be able to spot a good read that is accessible to a wide audience.


The basics: You can spot straightforward spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors and can neaten up unintentional clumsy phrasing.


The more subtle: You can notice when there is an inconsistent style within a story. Perhaps the message of the story isn’t quite clear and you have ideas of how it can be better communicated. Furthermore, you’re willing to work a bit more closely with some authors in order to help develop their work.




If you’re interested in applying, send an e-mail to [email protected] with ‘SUB-EDITOR ROLE’ in the subject line. Include a brief description about yourself and why you’re interested in this role. We’ll then send you a short story sample to edit so that we can see your approach. If you’ve got any questions, e-mail us at the same address!


We look forward to hearing from you!
