Call for Editor

The Looking Glass: New Perspectives on Children's Books, an electronic journal about children's literature, seeks a general editor and an institutional publisher.

This journal is currently published by a small group of volunteers. Our expertise includes writing, editing, teaching, publishing, librarianship, and scholarship—various aspects of the children's book trade. Active and capable editors will continue to oversee the individual columns, and the journal seeks to further cultivate its growing base of international topics, readers, and contributors. Graduate programs, especially, may wish to consider The Looking Glass as a forum for the stimulation and exchange of ideas, as well as an opportunity to experience the editing and proofing processes. 

About The Looking Glass

The site was launched April 2, 1997—International Children's Book Day. As our name suggests, we combine an interest in the traditional with an eye to the modern. Our readers and contributors are academics, librarians, teachers, parents, and anyone else fascinated by the world of children's literature. In the beginning, our parent organization was the Toronto Centre for the Study of Children's Literature (TCSCL), then housed at the Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto, now at York University. Since July 1,1998, however, The Looking Glass has been independent of any institutional support.
