A Lucasfilm job listing for a Senior Editor has been kicking around. The position involves both adult fiction and comics, which sounds like it would give one a guiding hand in the future of the expanded universe.
I can’t say for sure, but it should be noted that Sue Rostoni is Executive Editor, so I believe this listing is for someone who reports to or works with her, NOT her replacement. Or perhaps not: It was announced 6/9 that Rostoni is retiring.
The position requires a BA, several years of experience and knowledge of Star Wars fiction.

Yeah IIRC if it deals with Comics that wouldn’t be Sue’s position.
Hmmm… I wonder if they’d be impressed with a B.A and and M.Div?
i’m pretty sure that a “What’s the Story?” credit is worth at least 2-3 years of publishing experience.
If only I actually knew how to be an editor….
I applied, despite the lack of BA…. I’ve got everything else nailed. I don’t expect to hear back.
I applied as well. All of my editorial work has been on academic journals though.
Hmm. No formal publishing experience, but I wonder if they’d take me with my shiny new MFA?
No Ba but plenty of experience of Star Wars
Good luck to all of you who are applying!
