Position descriptions

Please read these volunteer descriptions and then indicate below which you'd like to help with. If you have other skills not listed here, you can list them below!

Editor-in-Chief – Handles all EiC duties, including approving the journal at each step along the way, managing the editors, reviewing processes, responding to staff questions, assisting where necessary, and ensuring the journal is up to standards and run properly.

Associate Editor-in-Chief – Volunteer with experience as a genre editor to assist EiC. Highest volunteer position possible. Only for those volunteers who have shown dedication to TR and an ability to meet deadlines. Works with EiC.

Submissions Editor – This person organizes Submittable, start the submissions process, close submissions on time, and then reviews submissions for compliance with Submission Guidelines. Any that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected by the Submissions Editor. The remainder will be compiled by the Submissions Editor and send to the appropriate Editors.

Genre Editors – Five total, one person per genre (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, scripts, visual arts). They will receive the submissions for their genre and disburse them to their Readers. They will manage their Readers, and be responsible for getting publication-worthy pieces selected, ordered by preference, and submitted to the EiC and the AEiC for final approval.

Readers – Variable. Volunteers who read submissions and rank submissions. They answer to their Genre Editor. Anyone can be a reader as well as hold any other position (except the Submissions Editor, since they might see information that may bias them), since nothing else is going on during the reading period.

Copy Editor: WORD – One or two. These people may put all of the EiC-accepted submissions into a single WORD document (or the EiC might do it), format it properly, perform basic copy edits (spelling, formatting, basic grammar—but nothing substantive), and submit to EiC & AEiC for layout approval. Prefer two, but one is sufficient.

Proofreader: PDF – One or two. Initially, will be the same as the WORD Copy Editor. These people will take the final formatted and laid-out version of the journal and do final proofreading run throughs. Once the draft is finalized, the EiC will sign off on it. Again, prefer two, but one is sufficient.

Design & Production Editor – This person will handle the design and production of the journal, including cover design, any graphics inside the journal (so will work with Copy Editor), compile, organize, design, and get the final EiC-approved version to press.

Web & Social Media Chief – This person will operate the TR website. If WW already has a webmaster and would prefer, we can just use that person. Will be responsible for putting new issues up on website, updating submission dates and issue themes, putting up any web-only pieces, updating submission guidelines, and running TR’s social media sites (FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).

Optional Positions – As needed.
