Vacancy: editors

The editorial board of FRAME is currently looking for new editors, who are enthusiastic about literary studies and who are looking for a publishing opportunity.

Being an editor for FRAME means that you are involved in the field of literary studies, that you are fluent in English and, most importantly, that you’re enthusiastic about editing. For practical reasons, we only accept applications from those based in the Netherlands at the moment.

FRAME is a journal in English that is run completely by students. New issues appear biannually, and for each issue the editorial board chooses a theme that focuses on recent developments within the field. For instance, recent issues have explored subjects such as , animal studies, activism, or urban studies. We are currently developing our issue 35.1 “Literary Perspectives on Food”.

After selecting a theme, FRAME invites scholars of literary and cultural studies from all over the world, and their proposals are subsequently reviewed. Ultimately we make content-based suggestions and we revise the articles thoroughly to prepare them for publication. Next to typical editorial activities in which everyone participates, there are also specific tasks: PR, finances, subscriptions, web administration, and the organization of readings and conventions. Our mission is to make a journal of high quality that is read by as many colleagues as possible.

If you’re interested in applying for a board position at FRAME, please send your CV, a motivation letter and a recent writing sample to info [@]

Please note that due to the nature of our journal, we cannot offer financial compensation for your time. Our application process includes an interview and an editing test, but we do not necessarily require former editing experience in our applicants.
