A proud new dad sits down to have a drink with his father
"Well son, now that you’ve got a kid of your own, I think it’s time to give you this"
"Dad, you don’t mean-"
"Yes son, I do" *Dad pulls out copy of 1001 Dad Jokes, 5th Edition*
"Dad… I’m honoured…", he says, tears sparkling in his eyes.
"Hi honoured", replies his father. "I’m dad".
WHAT IS THE ADROIT JOURNAL?
The Adroit Journal(www.adroit.co.nr) is an internationally distributed literary magazine with a defined focus on giving emerging writers in high school and college the professional treatment they deserve by featuring their works alongside the works of a myriad of established writers (such as Matthew Rohrer, Dorianne Laux, Ned Vizzini, Garth Greenwell, Edith Pearlman, Bruce Bond, Laura Kasischke, and more). Since its inception in November 2010, the journal has received almost 7,000 submissions for consideration, and maintains an acceptance rate of approximately 4%. Each year, the journal constructs a humanitarian feature (2012- Cuba, 2013- Zimbabwe), recognizes undergraduate and secondary writers with the Adroit Prizes in Fiction and Verse, and nominates selected works for the Pushcart Prizes, Best New Poets Anthology, Best of Net Anthology, and Plain China Best Undergraduate Writing Anthology. Current developments (with the help of the University of Pennsylvania’s Kelly Writers House) include adjusting to an annual publication plan of two online issues and one print issue, while further sculpting our charitable focus to distribute print copies around the United States with the help of our partner organization the Fill-A-Room Campaign (www.fillaroom.org).
The journal is currently staffed by approximately sixty high school and college students from around the world. As the journal continues to expand and assimilate to the global literary world, we have opened our doors to new individuals (expanded now to a category of 24 years of age or younger as of October 1, 2013, the beginning of our reading period) to fill a variety of volunteer positions, all of which are detailed in this catalogue. Please note that experience, while beneficial, is not necessary, and that you can apply for as many different positions as you would like. All applications should be emailed to email@example.com according to the specialized guidelines included throughout this catalogue.
We will close our application portal on December 1, 2013, but encourage you to apply sooner rather than later, as we will be evaluating applications on a rolling basis. Please email applications separately if applying for more than one position. In the meantime, please feel encouraged to reach out via email (drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org) if you happen to have any questions, or would like additional information.
In the meantime, feel free to SUBMIT to our ninth issue, and—simultaneously—to the 2014 Adroit Prizes in Fiction & Verse for aspiring writers in high school and college! Yes, you can submit if you’re planning to apply for staff positions, and yes, you have nothing to lose!
…and share with your friends. Please?
i have never recovered from the time i read a comment online where someone said benedict cumberbatch looks like the pod race commentators from star wars i: the phantom menace
how not to:
hope you didn’t get caught this embarrassing footage should be punishment enough
Get paid by sharing your thoughts (or donate them to charity), totally your choice!
Joining is completely free, although this is limited to US Residents only, though you can still sign up but you won’t be able to do much surveys.
Start earning now!
I highly recommend this paid survey site, although honestly if you’re not from the US, dont’ bother. You won’t be even eligible to most (if not all) survey opportunities.
But they DO pay. Just look for reviews if you want some proof, they’ve been around for quite a long time & they are quite a reputable company.
I signed up for this though I wasn’t a US resident & I can prove that it’s absolutely useless if you aren’t so don’t bother.
One of the absolute few paid survey sites that aren’t a scam.
You have to be 18+ to be eligible for payment, I believe.
Though I just put 18 as my age despite being 16 & got paid anyways haha
I don’t want to sound like I’m not giving Archie Comics enough credit, but if you are somehow less progressively-minded than Archie Comics you really ought to reevaluate yourself
Considering how stuck in the past Archie comics are they have a pretty good track record of trying to be socially progressive and inclusive. That “Million Moms” group was trying to boycott them over a gay marriage story and their official response to the controversy was “We don’t care if bigots don’t read our comics”
Course, a friend of mine once posited that Archie basically uses kissing as a euphemism for sex. Usually. Given the Archie universe’s questionable continuity consistency.
