Call for Interviews & Reviews

Thank you for your interest in interviewing or reviewing for us. 

 

“Jump” by Chloe Kang

We are looking for writers who hope to critically transcend, question, investigate, and explore. If this sounds like you, please click here to apply.

Note: If you have an existing interview or review you’d like to submit for publication, you may also use this form. Simply put N/A for second and third choices, and proceed as otherwise directed.

In addition, please note that an author’s presence on this list does not necessarily mean they will be available for interviews at the time of (y)our inquiry.

Unfortunately, we are not able to pay our interview conductors and review writers at this time, though we do ensure that they receive one copy each of the books under their consideration. Due to increasing shipping costs, some small presses are unable to ship titles outside the United States; in these cases, PDF copies will be provided.

*At this time, we have an aesthetic preference for interviews.*

Click here to view our most recent interviews and reviews. Again, you may click here to begin a brief application to review or interview for us.

 

IF YOU’D LIKE US TO CONSIDER A TITLE OR TITLES FOR INTERVIEW OR REVIEW,

Please email us at editors@theadroitjournal.org to request our mailing address, to which you may send a print copy of a recent release.

*Note: An asterisk denotes that the writer is a member of the extended Adroit family.
