CCCC/TYCA Editorial Fellowship

Academic journals and book series play a vital role in the creation and circulation of knowledge in our field. To support the next generation of editors and authors, CCCC and TYCA have established the CCCC/TYCA Editorial Fellowship for graduate students (post qualifying exams) and early professionals. The selected individuals will work with either the editor of College Composition and Communication, the editor of the CCCC Studies in Writing and Rhetoric book series, or the editor of Teaching English in the Two-Year College. During their appointment, recipients will gain experience in proposal/manuscript development, working with authors, building editorial boards, and implementing a strategic vision plan.
CCCC and TYCA members who identify as members of underrepresented groups, especially Black, Latinx, Asian, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islanders, as well as scholar/teachers from HBCUs, HSIs, and community colleges are encouraged to apply. Two fellows will be chosen for each publication. SWR, TETYC, and CCC fellowships will each last one year. NOTE: No previous experience is required or assumed.
To apply, each applicant should submit the following:

  • A one-page cover letter indicating whether they are applying for the CCC, TETYC, or SWR fellowship, as well as highlighting any previous editorial/publishing experience relevant to that specific fellowship.
  • A one-page statement of editorial philosophy, specifically addressing what the applicant understands as the most pressing issues facing scholarly publishing at this current moment.
  • A one-page curriculum vitae detailing relevant experience.

If appointed, each fellow should expect to gain experience in the following:

  • Oversight of one manuscript from initial submission to publication, inclusive of assigning reviewers, providing feedback, and working with authors toward publication.
  • Coordinating a set of publications to fulfill editorial mission.
  • Experience in Editorial Board policy development and decision-making processes.

Application materials should be sent by February 1 to Kristen Suchor, CCCC Liaison.

Fellowships will be announced at CCCC 2018 in Kansas City.
Selection Committee: Jonathan Alexander (CCC editor), Holly Hassel (TETYC editor), Steve Parks (SWR editor), and Kurt Austin (NCTE publications director).
