SHARKPACK Poetry Review (www.sharkpackpoetry.com) is looking for keen, gifted critics interested in contributing to a growing imprint. SPR is unique in its mission to 'review contemporary and (ever-living) poems of the past as stand-alone art objects, extant outside the contexts of books and anthologies.' Book reviews and pieces on poetics are also possible. Payment is modest and on a 'per-article' basis; PACK members (titled 'Assistant Editors') also receive a yearly honorarium. If interested, please review some of our critical pieces (search the tag 'General Criticism') and the 'Contact' and 'What is the poetic SHARKPACK?' sections on our website, and e-mail the editor following. This is a Web-based position; you need not be based in the Boston area to apply.
