The 2017 Concordia English Graduate Colloquium is presently seeking editors for our 15th annual conference and inaugural volume of conference proceedings.
This position offers an opportunity to earn valuable experience editing academic and hybrid papers on a variety of subjects relating to this year’s conference theme: “The Sincerest form of Flattery.” Working closely alongside the authors of the work, editors will hone their critical and analytic skills in order to polish papers for both presentation and publication. The responsibilities of the editor include: verifying citations and facts; editing papers for content; copyediting papers for publication; ensuring that papers conform to the MLA style selected for the volume of conference proceedings; and working in collaboration with the editorial team, organizing committee, and the authors themselves. Editors will also have the opportunity to chair panels at the conference from March 17-18, 2016.
Priority will be awarded to graduate students in Concordia’s Department of English. Individuals concurrently submitting papers are welcome to apply, and will simply not be asked to work on their own papers.
Please submit a brief paragraph of intent and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 3, 2017.
