If you’re interested please send them your resumé, a brief cover letter, and a link to digitally published work, portfolio, blog and such to the following email address ( by Monday, November 5th. Please indicate in the subject line which genre you are applying for.

They are also looking for a web developer to design Threshold‘s new website, so feel free to shoot them an email if this sounds like something you might be interested in doing for the magazine.
