Subject: Call for Editors & Contributors
The Shakespeare Standard (http://theshakespearestandard.com) seeks volunteer editors and contributors for
its ongoing publication.
The Shakespeare Standard is run by committed volunteer editors and contributors -- and we'd love for you
to be a part of our team. We are constantly on the lookout for contributors -- bloggers, podcasters,
designers, photographers, copy editors, authors, scholars, critics, actors, directors, marketing
professionals (or semi-pros), administrators, legal advisors, interns, and just about anything else you
can think of -- to help with the site. If you have even a couple hours a month, you can put your skills
to work and get a big platform for you and your work in Shakespeare, or support the work of others from
behind the scenes.
We also have a number of editorial positions available in areas including Performance, Theatre,
Multimedia, Scholarship, Voices (commentary and editorials), Shakespeare and Film, Adaptations,
Criticism, Scholarship, Photography, and Social Media, as well as several At-Large positions. We also
welcome you to suggest your own position.
While all contributors are volunteers, The Shakespeare Standard does allow contributors to include our
donation coding in their posts so that they may receive payment. These details are all discussed with our
Editors once you make a successful application.
To apply, email
. Be sure to include your name, contact information, a
cover letter detailing your interest areas, a brief biography, and a current resume or vita.
About The Shakespeare Standard
Shakespeare is a broad field comprised of multiple, and more often than we'd like, disparate, communities
- scholarship, performance, education, media, pop culture, and modern language to name a few. The mission
of The Shakespeare Standard is to foster and celebrate these communities online, and to drive the
conversation among these communities and their members, believing that this conversation will constitute
a modern living playhouse, where ideas, images, discussion, debates, current events, arts, and
individuals forge a new and emerging community comprised of the disparate parts.
