The Columbia Journal of Literary Criticism, which publishes student writing twice a year and holds debates and seminars, is looking for editors. They sent Bwog the presser below (emphasis added by Bwog).
We are currently seeking to appoint associate and senior editors. Senior and associate editors will read submissions to help determine which will be published in the journal, and subsequently edit those submissions. Editors are encouraged to submit articles themselves, conduct interviews, make suggestions for the journal and help plan events.
We are also seeking to appoint a design editor who will help redesign the journal’s layout, format the journal using Adobe InDesign, and communicate with the printers.
If you’re interested, just send your answers to these questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is next Saturday, October 12.
- Name, School, and Class Year
- (Intended) Major(s)
- Why are you interested in this position?
- What, if any, previous relevant experience do you have? If applicable, how will it help you in your work for the journal?
- Please write a 200-word critique of “Romantic Nausea,” page 53 of the last issue. Do you find it successful or not? Why and in what ways? What changes might you have made?
- If you wish, feel free to submit a sample of your writing (journalistic or academic). Attach it to your application, explaining where it was published or what class, if any, it was written for.
