Digging Through The Fat publishes prose and poetry from emerging and established writers and poets throughout the year. We are recruiting volunteers to join our masthead as Staff Readers.

Volunteers will not be paid cash, but we will be happy to give you a great reference. As a volunteer, you’re free to leave the position at any time. We ask only that you send us a courtesy note to let us know.

Staff Readers:
We seek critical but open-minded readers. You can choose which category you prefer to read (short fiction or poetry). Readers will be assigned small groups of submissions on a twice-monthly basis and asked to vote and comment on the submissions within two weeks of the assignment.

Thank you and good luck!

09/11/2016 Update for All Current Applicants: Thanks to all who have applied to work as volunteers. We received more applicants than spots available at this time, which surprised us in a good way. If you don’t hear from us it means we’ve placed you on our stand-by list. If a spot opens up, you will receive notification. Cheers to all!


Thank you and good luck!
