Position: Professional Development Fellow
Graduate Student Fellowships at The Yale Review offer Yale University doctoral students the opportunity to join the editorial team of a literary and intellectual journal as we move into the digital landscape and re-define our identity: the launch of a new website and podcast are planned for the Fall and Spring of 2020. The role trains students in skills relevant to magazine publishing and a career in intellectual journalism, including but not limited to helping conceive of editorial features and rubrics; writing online pieces/introductions and fact checking; helping conceive of special projects that take advantage of the web as a medium; reading and evaluating submissions; assigning art (in the form of photos and illustrations); managing social media and publicity campaigns; copy editing; headline writing; soliciting writers; overseeing undergraduate interns; preparing articles for the web; doing basic day-to-day site maintenance; monitoring traffic analytics to develop growth strategies; and other work that goes into making a magazine today. Although the positions are not restricted to those students who wish to pursue an editorial career, student fellows gain in-depth knowledge of and high-level firsthand experience of the professional skills required. They receive training not only from our editor in chief, an author and former editor at Slate, The New Yorker, and The Paris Review, but also engage in learning sessions with assorted industry professionals. Recent fellows took part in discussions with editors at The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Slate. They also took part in regular strategy sessions with a web strategist for The Paris Review, Lapham’s Quarterly, and The London Review of Books and members of one of New York’s leading design firms, Pentagram. Students will leave the fellowship with extensive hands-on experience in what it means to work in literary magazines and a concrete sense of what makes for good public writing.
What follows are not requirements; we are looking most of all for highly curious, engaged, motivated, and detail-oriented candidates. But it would help to have some of the following: a prior interest in magazine publishing or a deep engagement with intellectual journals/literary magazines of the moment; copy editing skills; digital fluency and an interest in thinking about how the internet/podcasts/social media could play a role in The Yale Review’s identity. Please note that only PhD students in their teaching years or eligible for guaranteed sixth-year teaching may apply for this position, and no student may be assigned to a Professional Development Opportunity more than two terms.
