We are looking for writers who are capable of writing thoughtful reviews from a distinctively Christian perspective, who would be interested in reviewing 1-4 books per year. We would work with you to determine deadlines and to decide on a book-by-book basis whether we could use a feature review (800-1200 words) or a brief review (300-600 words).
We are not currently able to pay for these reviews, but typically you will receive a complimentary copy of the book to be reviewed. We reserve the right to edit or reject any review if we feel it does not fit with our mission.
Anyone interested should use the ** CONTACT US ** link on the left to email us. Please send a couple of sentences telling about yourself, two or three categories of books that you would particularly like to review (fiction, poetry, history, cultural criticism, etc.), the two or three best books that you’ve read in the last year and, if possible, two brief samples of your writing (preferably book reviews).
Enlarging our list of reviewers will help to make The Englewood Review more robust and to allow us to offer a larger and more diverse selection of reviews.
