IDIOM is back for the 2018-19 school year at the University of Toronto, and to kick off a new year we are launching our first-ever Instagram! It will allow us to bring our journal into the 21st Century, engage more seamlessly with the literary public, and will become one of the main ways we promote our material. Be sure to check it out on Instagram: @idiomjournaluoft !
Also stay tuned for our 2018-19 call for editorial board members and Managing Editors, and for our call for submissions! We’re looking forward to seeing what brilliant ideas our undergraduate students have to share with us!

Each year, we are impressed by the number of talented candidates who express interest in joining the Editorial Board of IDIOM, and this year was no exception. Thank you to all who applied for the Editorial Board, and we encourage unsuccessful applicants to re-apply next year. We hope that you will continue engaging with the Journal by submitting a paper for potential publication or picking up a copy of the forthcoming volume.
IDIOM, the University of Toronto (St. George) English Undergraduate Academic Journal, is currently seeking new members to join the Editorial Board and assist with the production of the twelfth volume of the journal. Applications are open for the following positions:
- Five (5) Associate Editors – select and edit submissions of literary criticism for publication in the journal
- One (1) Managing Editor – moderate all submissions during the selections process
If you are interested in getting involved with IDIOM for the 2017-2018 academic year, please visit the “Apply” section of our website to download an Application Form. Details about the available positions and their respective responsibilities can be found under the “FAQ” tab on our website.
During the first semester of the academic year, the time commitment expected of the Editorial Board will be relatively light, with the focus on planning and fundraising. The majority of the work will commence in January 2018, once submissions close, and the selections and editing process begins.
The deadline to submit applications for consideration is 11:59pm on Sunday October 8th, 2017.
Please direct any inquiries to Maria Al-Raes at email@example.com.
Thanks to all who have submitted their wonderful work for our review thus far.

If you only recently heard about our Call for Papers, or if you feel you could use just a bit more time to revise those Fall term papers, please take advantage of this new deadline. We can’t wait to read your essays!
