Poetry, flash fiction, short fiction and EVERYTHING ELSE. You will read and select submissions, propose authors to commission, discuss it all with the Chief and make the next issue happen. This will take up however much of your time you want to spend on it. We will discuss it and agree on something that works for everyone.
Nutshell is based in Hackney, London, so, ideally, that’s where we’ll meet. We do understand the modern world though, so working remotely from the sticks is also possible.
