Students are welcome to apply for a position on this year’s Long River Review staff. Each year the Long River Review, UConn’s award-winning journal of literature and art, seeks editors and staff for the following positions:
Interview and Podcast Editors
Social Media Editor and Social Media Leads
Editorial Reading Panels (Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Poetry)
Student editors all register for English 3713, a practicum in literary journal editing, offered every spring. Class members read widely in contemporary literary magazines, familiarizing themselves with older and newer print and online publications. Readings are combined with research presentations, writings, and hands-on editing work. The class culminates with the public release of its major project, that year’s issue of the Long River Review.
English 3713 is by permission only. Students who wish to apply should e-mail a one-page application letter detailing class standing, past English experience, and any other writing/ editorial experience with Ellen Litman (email@example.com) by the end of October 15th. Interviews (either in person or via Webex, depending on your preference) will be arranged during the October advising period.
Please familiarize yourself with the magazine (you can find our past issues at the UConn Bookstore in Storrs Center or by visiting the Creative Writing Offices in AUST 146, 147, and 142) and review the job descriptions for our available positions:
