No. Jeopardy is an open call magazine. As such, we do not operate with a theme in mind during the selection process.
We try our hardest to respond to submissions in a timely manner, but it could be up to six months before you hear from us. Thanks for your patience!
A personalized rejection means you are on the right track. When our editors feel strongly about a piece that is not quite ready for publication, we like to offer suggestions and encouragement to aid the future of the piece.
Of course. You are welcome to resubmit a previously rejected piece after making revisions.
Yes. We will make certain you do not receive your own piece to evaluate, so this is no problem at all.
The call for the Editor-in-Chief goes out in May and is followed by the call for associate editors. Feel free to check in with Faculty Advisor Kami Westhoff or current Editor-in-Chief Hannah Newman about future job opportunities.
Your submission is first evaluated by a group of volunteer content evaluators. From there, the genre editor will evaluate your piece, taking the opinions of the content evaluators into consideration. Finally, the Editor-in-Chief will evaluate your piece. Decisions are then made by the entire staff, taking volunteer evaluations into consideration.
Withdraw your piece from submittable, make the necessary changes, and resubmit.
