CCCC/TYCA Editorial Fellowships

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 Forum (an online, peer-reviewed CCCC journal dedicated to issues related to NTT faculty and published biannually in print), 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 scholars/teachers from HBCUs, HSIs, and community colleges are encouraged to apply. One fellow will be chosen for each publication/series. CCC, Forum, SWR, and TETYC fellowships will each last one year. Fellowships can be extended for up to an additional year if such an arrangement is mutually agreeable to the fellow and respective editor. NOTE: No previous experience is required or assumed.

To apply, each applicant should submit the following:

  • A one-page cover letter specifying which fellowship they are applying for (CCC, Forum, SWR, or TETYC) and highlighting any experiences relevant to that specific fellowship.
  • A one-page statement of editorial philosophy, specifically addressing what the applicant understands to be 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.
  • Developing editorial board policy and decision-making processes.

Application materials should be sent by Friday, February 1, 2019, to Kristen Suchor, CCCC Liaison.

Fellowships will be announced at CCCC 2019 in Pittsburgh.

Selection Committee: Jonathan Alexander (CCC editor), Amy Lynch-Biniek (Forum editor), Steve Parks (SWR series editor), Holly Hassel (TETYC editor), and Kurt Austin (NCTE publications director).
