In the past few days, several colleagues have offered to write for us and have mentioned that they know that The Avid Listener is on hiatus so they don’t want to bother us until we’re back up and running. Let me clarify: We are on a publishing hiatus and won’t publish new essays until August. But we’re NOT on an editing / acquisitions hiatus. In fact, we need essays NOW. We currently have nothing to publish for the fall and are hoping to stock up over summer so (1) we can run a digest in August to help faculty folks plan syllabi around new essays, and (2) have plenty of essays on hand so we can continue to bring you fabulous, accessible scholarship.
So if you want to write for us, now is the best time ever. You’ll see your work published this fall, you’ll get good mentoring along the way, and you’ll get paid. Who could ask for anything more!
