Page Turner Magazine is a genre fiction magazine of and for Emerson students, staff, and alumni. We provide an open medium to both promote and enhance diverse and emerging voices among the genres, as well as preserving and representing the creative conscience in genre fiction and the arts.

We are looking to add more dedicated and passionate people to our board. If you’re interested, submit an application to with the following information:

  • Subject: Name – Board Member
  • Body:
    • Name:
    • Year of graduation from Emerson:
    • What do you read?
    • What do you write?
    • Are you willing to be a reader if you’re not selected for the board?

Please complete the questionnaire and submit your resume or CV (if you have one) as a PDF, .doc, or .docx attachment. Keep in mind that board positions are remote and volunteer.

Page Turner Magazine’s board is responsible for the supervision and the overall affairs of the magazine. The board ensures that our organization is operated to benefit the literary community and that it adheres to our mission. Any current staff member may also serve as a board member, although a separate application is required.

Page Turner Magazine’s submissions department strives to maintain the integrity of the submissions process while fostering creativity among our staff, throughout Emerson College students, and beyond. We do ask that all contest and standard submissions come from Emerson students through their Emerson emails. We do allow members of the Page Turner Magazine Staff and Board to submit to the magazine as long as they recuse themselves from reviewing their own submissions or submissions from which they could personally identify the author. Before submissions are judged, each author is given a code name by the Submissions Manager. The Submissions Manager then assigns reading to ensure that no one reads their own work or work they could trace back to an author personally known to them.

The short version? Page Turner Magazine wants to keep a level table, which means you’re free to submit content if you’re an Emerson College student.
