Applications for the position of Awards Administrator is open

For the first time in GCLS history, the Board is formally soliciting applications for the position of Awards Administrator. This is one of the most important volunteer roles within the GCLS organization, as awards administrators are responsible for the smooth running and delivery of the GCLS Awards Program. The Awards Program fulfills one of the three mission statements of the GCLS, to:

Recognize and promote lesbian literary work.
We are looking for highly motivated and independent individuals who are committed to ensuring the GCLS Awards Program is conducted in a fair, ethical and professional manner. Membership in the GCLS is not required, however applicants should be familiar with the Awards Program and/or lesbian literature, authors and publishing in general.

The Awards Program runs throughout the year; and the awards administrators will have the opportunity to work with authors, publishers, readers as well as a team of knowledgeable judges. The awards administrators operate independent of the Board, and have the discretion to make decisions that are in the best interests of the Awards Program. It is a highly rewarding role, to be directly responsible for one of the most recognizable lesbian literature awards and to be instrumental in strengthening the quality of lesbian writing.

The online application form may be accessed by clicking on this link. Before submitting, please read the detailed Job Description and Requirements and Awards Information including nomination guidelines, judging process, and timeline.

The deadline for submitting an application is January 31st, 2018. All applications will be reviewed by a committee made up of board members, awards administrators, and other independent individuals as appointed by the Board. Successful candidates will be notified by March 31st, 2018. Appointment will commence in July 2018 for the 2018-19 awards season although training for the role will begin prior to that.
