Open Positions:

Web Editor

The Adroit Journal seeks a savvy, detail-oriented web editor to play an essential role in delivering our online content to our readers. Responsible for the upkeep and creation of landing pages for our website, as well as for the design and digital layout of our quarterly issues, the web editor must possess an eye for typesetting and design, excellent organization and communication skills, and a strong technical skillset. Previous experience with managing and creating content in WordPress is required. Basic knowledge of web languages (such as HTML and CSS), familiarity with the Chicago Manual of Style, and comfort working within editorial management systems (especially Submittable), SoundCloud, and basic photo editing software are a plus. This volunteer role reports to the managing editor. Estimated commitment: 1–5 hours per week, with additional work during periods of issue production.

Prose Reader

Prose readers get the first crack at all submissions in their specified genre, and are expected to review fiction and nonfiction (and hybrid) submissions regularly and consistently. Reviewing submissions includes voting, providing comments, and participating in occasional discussions about pieces on the bubble. (Est. commitment: 3.5 hrs/week.)



We are fully open to all readers and writers. At this time, we are not open to staff readers of other internationally-staffed unaffiliated literary journals. Publications that consider solely campus work, or work with specific geographic eligibility requirements, do not apply to this restriction.

As we seek to fill open positions sooner rather than later, we consider applications on a rolling basis.

***Unless otherwise specified, all positions are remote in nature & have a start-date of ASAP.***
