Readers and Feature Writers

We regularly seek volunteer readers who will uphold a standard of wonder, quality, and diversity at Page Turner Magazine. Candidates are required to submit an application to applypageturner@gmail.com. To apply, send us an email containing the following information:

  • Subject: Name – Reader
  • Body:
    • Name
    • Year of graduation from Emerson
    • What do you read?
    • What do you write?
    • Please share any past experience you have as a reader for a literary journal.
    • 250 word biography that highlights your skills and personality.

Please keep in mind that if you are selected as a reader, you may have to read submissions outside of your preferred genre. All staff members may be called upon to read submissions, especially as deadlines draw near. Reader positions are remote and volunteer.

Page Turner Magazine’s submissions department strives to maintain the integrity of the submissions process. To that end, we ask that all current staff members, board members, and readers refrain from submitting content to the magazine during their period of appointment (to consist of the period leading up the publication of a given issue). All former staff members, board members, and volunteer staff are welcome to submit content after the expiry of their appointment, to be considered for subsequent issues. 
The short version? Page Turner Magazine wants to keep a level table, which means you’re free to submit content for an issue you haven’t worked on.

We are seeking interviews and book reviews to add to the Features page at Page Turner Magazine. Have a piece you’d like to share with us? Send us an email at applypageturner@gmail.com containing the following information:

  • Subject: Name – Feature
  • Body:
    • Name
    • Year of graduation from Emerson
    • What book would you like to review or author do you plan to interview?
    • Please share any past experience you have as a reviewer, blogger, or journalist.
    • One or two writing samples (preferably non-fiction pieces like blog posts, articles, or reviews)

If your work is a good fit, we’ll reach out to you with an acceptance letter and a link to our style guide. Page Turner Magazine accepts Features submission on a per-article basis. If you’re interested in joining our staff, please apply to our staff page, here.

Note: Feature writers are still allowed to submit genre fiction pieces to the magazine, unless they are also members of the staff, board, or readers.
