revolution: from the Middle English revolucion, Late Latin revolūtiōn – (stem of revolūtiō) ‘a turn around’, equivalent to revolūt(us). r
Revolution and revolt have a shared origin, both ultimately going back to the latin revolver “to revolve, roll back.” … at virtually the same time, the word developed a sharply different meaning, namely, ”a sudden radical, or complete change,” apparently from the idea of reversal of direction implicit in the latin verb.
Join us in our travel writing revolution.
At Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel, we are interested in creating a revolt against the definitions of not just what travel writing is, but what travel is. If you’d like to join us, we offer the opportunity to work with some of the most gifted editors in the world, and taking part in Panorama means you are committing to something important. We work together as a collective, and are interested in your ideas, as well as your support.
Please apply to the editor email directly after the position. The best way to discern your suitability is to is to visit our Mission page and explore our archive, as well as familiarize yourself with our Masthead.
All positions work in tandem, and we spread out the work among many, creating four issues a year. The print edition is run differently, with a core team. Our team lives around the world, and works remotely. Most Assistant Editors are chosen by their lead editors, and other positions are chosen by the Editor-in Chief and advisory Senior Editor team. Please allow 30 days for a response.
We are especially open to applicants with a global perspective, and invite those who are outside of traditional opportunities to apply. We regret we cannot pay for your work, as we are all volunteers and Panorama is self funded. However, we do provide opportunities such as invitations for panels, conferences, and publishing.
Please send a cover letter which includes your location, relevant information about your background and point of view on travel literature, social media and website links, as well as how you feel you could work with/add to the Panorama mission. Attach a resume in a Word Doc with relevant experience. [No PDFs]. While we are travel literature oriented, we do not require our team to be, as we understand how limited the genre has been in the past.
Due to our strong commitment to diversity, we especially encourage diverse candidates and those from areas of the world without ready access to such opportunities.
Positions are removed from our site as they are filled.
Panorama relies on pre-readers worldwide to check each online issue pre-publication after final edits. We use British spellings and grammar rules, and provide a Style guide. We’d like to make these positions masthead spots, and include you in our army of travel writing revolutionaries!
Description: Works are sent out each quarter, from poems to long narrative prose, and readers work with section editors, the Managing Editor, and the editor-in-chief. If you’d like to read works for each issue, and help us with our mission, we invite you to apply. You should have a firm grasp of the English language, but a familiarity with British English is not necessary. We keep 8-10 readers on hand for each issue, and divide the works accordingly, with 3-7 works being read by each, depending on length. Works are exchanged via email, and generally have a long window to complete. This is not an editor position, but a reader position.
To work as a reader, apply to firstname.lastname@example.org, and title your email: Reader Candidate.
