Call for Student Editors


TCC’s online literary and arts journal needs student editors! The Tulsa Review publishes creative writing and artwork by TCC  students, faculty, staff, and the general public.  We’re looking for creative, responsible student editors to help publish our spring 2019 issue.


We need currently enrolled (fall 2018/spring 2019) TCC students for these editorial positions:

  • Chief /managing editor—In charge of general editorial operations
  • Poetry editor—In charge of poetry selection from general submissions
  • Fiction editor—In charge of fiction selection from general submissions
  • Nonfiction editor—In charge of nonfiction selection from general submissions
  • Visual arts editor—In charge of visual arts selection from general admissions
  • Drama editor (new this year)—In charge of drama (one-act play or dramatic scene) selection from general admissions
  • Web design editor—In charge of putting content online


As an editor, you’ll gain experience and skills in aspects of literary publishing such as selecting writing and artwork for publication, marketing, seeking submissions, coordinating contests, fundraising, and more. Being an editor looks great on a resume, and it’s a great opportunity to take part in Tulsa’s literary arts community.


You should be a self-motivated, creative thinker able to meet deadlines and work well within a group. You’ll also need to devote time to meetings/promotions, especially during March and April 2019, just prior to publication.


To apply, please email a 2-page letter of interest to Dr. Allen Culpepper, Associate Professor of English, at

by Monday, October 15. In your letter, please answer the following questions:


  1. What is your background in creative writing, literature, web design, or visual arts? (Previous experience is not a requirement, but if you do have it, we’d like to know about it.)
  2. Why do you want to work on this project?
  3. How strong is your ability to be self-motivated, to follow through with commitments, and to meet deadlines?
  4. What other talents, abilities, and experiences in life, school, and work can you bring to The Tulsa Review?
