CALL for EDITORS: Dandelion Journal – The Contemporary deadline 16 December



The Dandelion Journal seeks EDITORS to assist in the compiling and editing of the journal’s ‘THE CONTEMPORARY’ issue.

This is an exciting time in Dandelion’s history as we prepare to migrate the journal’s archive to the Open Library of Humanities. The current issue will mark Dandelion’s relaunch as an OLH journal.

We invite all Birkbeck School of Arts Postgraduate Students to join the Dandelion Journal Editorial Team. No prior experience of publishing or editorial is necessary: you will learn editorial skills as you go. We particularly require editors whose expertise lie in the fields of: History of Art, Screen Media, English and Humanities.

As a Dandelion Subeditor, you will be required to edit and copyedit two or three articles (between 3000 – 8000 words) between early-February 2017 and May 2017. We ask that you attend two or three editorial meetings with the rest of the team during this time. You will also be welcome to contribute to the team in any other ways you desire (e.g. events planning, design, typesetting etc).

We encourage you to send us an email explaining why and how you would like to be involved and detailing any relevant experience you have by Friday 16th December:


We look forward to hearing from you,

The editors:

Becky Sykes and Tom Travers
