Crook & Folly, DePaul University’s award-winning, all-student journal of literature and art, seeks applications from graduate and undergraduate students for two challenging and exciting volunteer positions as 2021-22 Editors-in-Chief.
The new editors will connect with the current editors sometime during Summer 2021 and will hire their section editors during Fall quarter 2020. In usual years Editors-In-Chief must be enrolled and available during all regular quarters of the entire 2021-2022 academic year, and must be enrolled and in-residence at DePaul for the Winter and Spring 2021 quarters. Campus/remote expectations for the editors will shift in accordance with University guidelines for on-campus operations.
Candidates for Editor-in-Chief should write a one-page (around 250 words) application letter describing relevant experience and commitment as well as vision for the magazine, and email it, as an attachment, to Professor Borich on or before 11:59 PM on Monday May 10th, 2021: firstname.lastname@example.org. Professor Borich, the outgoing faculty advisor, will team up with Professor Ted Anton, the incoming faculty advisor, to conduct interviews via Zoom in mid-May, and make the appointments before the end of Spring Quarter 2021. Please apply only if you are interested in the Editor-in-Chief position. All applications are considered, but current Crook & Folly staff members receive priority consideration for the head editor slots. (We strongly encourage newcomers to wait to apply to editorial staff positions in the Fall). Crook & Folly will call for staff and section editor applications in September 2021.

On a rainy Thursday night in the University Center for Writing-Based Learning, over twenty-five DePaul students and alumni gathered to share their work—poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and dramatic literature. Almost everybody who attended ended up sharing a piece for the group, with many of the readers being members of Crook & Folly or the Writing Center, the two organizations which collaborate to host such open mic nights every year. Many of the attendees, in fact, are repeats from previous open mics, finding past events so beneficial that they can’t help but come back.
Crook & Folly, DePaul’s own award-winning literary magazine, is accepting submissions for their 2017 issue through March 8th. They accept poetry, fiction, and flash fiction, and are seeking dramatic lit and creative nonfiction submissions in particular. This is a great way for aspiring or accomplished writers to get their work published and read within DePaul and the broader Chicago literary community.
To submit your work and learn more about Crook & Folly, visit their Facebook page.
Come showcase your creative work and get involved in DePaul’s writing community!
