As a #monster, you'll be a valued member of a small, tight-knit community of disabled women and nonbinary people. You'll get the chance to read and review submissions, contribute to the curation of blog content, spread the word of Monstering via social media, engage in conversation with both well-known and up-and-coming artists, and more! Above all, you'll be resisting erasure; you'll be centering voices that deserve to be heard, including your own; you'll be working to create a space for monsters to live, love, grow, and sing in.
Monstering is currently unable to pay its staff members. However, staff members are compensated with promotion via Monstering's social media channels.
Applications are open indefinitely, and are restricted to disabled women and nonbinary people. Priority will be given to black applicants, indigenous applicants, and applicants of color. We value creativity, innovation, commitment, passion, energy, and experience, but really, we're just looking for heart.
Questions? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

WHY SUPPORT US?
At the heart of Monstering is the publication of historically marginalized voices. We don't just hold space for disabled women and nonbinary people; we honor and uplift them, celebrating their monstrosities alongside our own. We are particularly dedicated to prioritizing the voices of people that identify as LGBT+ and people of color.
Monstering is an independently-run, nonprofit publication. This means that, in addition to the cost of everyday maintenance, we are also funding the monetary compensation of issue contributors, with the dream of compensating blog contributors sometime in the near future.
We need your help to make this, and many other dreams, a reality.
Donations allow us to focus on the work: yearly online issues, complete with audio recordings and image descriptions, as well as the continual publication of blog content.
- Ensure our financial stability
- Compensate disabled women and nonbinary people for their contributions
- Maintain our online presence through a hosted website, as well as various other social media platforms
- Allow us to further our reach, while still prioritizing the visibility of marginalized groups

We deeply appreciate your support. Monstering is made possible by monsters like you, so thank you—for everything.
