Are you our new editor?

The Ministry of Poetic Affairs wants to expand. We are searching for new editors for our website. Are you our new editor? Do read on!

The Ministry of Poetic Affairs is all about poetry. On daily basis, we publish the work of others. All to promote poets and their work. This can be poets who are famous or – also very important – those who aren’t. We provide an open platform, based on freedom of speech. Freedom of speech, we consider a great good.

We respect those who submit their work to us. The copyrights don’t belong to us, it belongs to those who’s poems we can publish.

Editors

An important role in the process of writing articles are the editors. These editors write the articles on the website and push them to social media.

Because we feel the need to share more poetry, we are currently searching for those who want to become an official editor for us.

  • Interested in poetry or maybe even a poet yourself.
  • Understands what a good poem looks like.
  • Can work with a text editor and WordPress or is ready to learn more about this.

We offer…

  • The chance to grow your portfolio: your name will be listed as authors and therefore you hold the copyrights to this article (we don’t), except for the poems you are publishing of others (of course).

  • The chance to publish your work (if you write poetry) on the main website.

As an editor, you will contact those who tag us on social media, scout for new talent and contact this talent, conduct interviews (mostly using e-mail or social media (DM)) and write articles. There is also a possibility to record your own vlog, about a poem you like and want to analyse.
