Prompt Journal Seeks Associate Editors

  • Aug 30, 2023

Call for Applications: Associate Editors

Prompt: A Journal of Academic Writing Assignments  

Associate Editors of Prompt attend our annual editorial board meeting via Zoom, publicize the journal to members of their fields, and assist in the editorial process for submissions in their area(s) of relevant disciplinary expertise. 

The two central tasks of the Associate Editors are (1) providing initial feedback and suggesting potential reviewers for new submissions to the journal; and (2) helping copy edit and proofread accepted manuscripts. Based on past submission and acceptance rates, we believe that Associate Editors in most disciplines can expect to be involved with 5 or fewer submissions per year. Though Associate Editors are not directly involved with the revision process, their contributions will shape the overall quality and focus of the journal’s published work.  

If you're unfamiliar with the journal, Prompt is a scholar-run, open-access, peer-reviewed online journal. It publishes academic writing assignments aimed at both undergraduate and graduate students from all academic disciplines. Its articles bring together theory and praxis in ways that should help promote better teaching of writing as well as illuminate the complexities of teaching writing in context.
