I first began my editorial journey at Cosmic Roots & Eldritch Shores as a submissions reader in 2017. From there, I joined the staff of Metaphorosis Magazine as a second reader in 2020, the same year I joined Flash Fiction Online as a first reader. I was promoted to the position of Jr Editor at FFO in 2021, and I can truly say that nothing has helped my writing more than volunteering on the editorial staff of these magazines. It gives me an opportunity to see first hand what works and what doesn't work in submissions, and to apply the same critical eye to my own stories.
For any writers who want to discuss personal critiques of their work, contact me at AJCunder.author(@)gmail.com with the subject line "Story Critique" to see how I can help you.
