Euonymous Needs Editors

Like helping other writers develop their work? Want to learn to edit interesting writing like a professional? Volunteer to be a student editor for Euonymous.

Euonymous (literally, “well named”) is looking for editors for it's next issue. The journal – which is the collective effort of both students and faculty – seeks to bring outstanding first-year writing into the public sphere and into dialogue with wider communities of scholars, writers, and readers. Student editors and publication managers will work collaboratively with faculty editors and University Writing faculty on the e-anthology during the spring semester. If you're interested in working on Euonymous, contact Faculty Editor Christy Zink at gwueanthology@gmail.com by Monday, December 22, 2008.

IMPORTANT: Student editors would need to be available for a daytime workshop on Saturday, January 31 to read submissions and select work for publication. Editorial training will be provided.

Student-editors and production managers will work on a range of activities, including but not limited to: designing content guidelines

  • reviewing incoming submissions
  • copy editing
  • proofreading
  • web design
  • fundraising
  • publicizing and promoting the e-anthology

Editors and publication managers may focus their efforts in any or all of these areas, depending on their individual interests. Students will gain intellectual and professional experience in building, sustaining, and producing a writing anthology through the entire publication process. If you are interested in participating, please contact the Faculty Editor, Christy Zink, at gwueanthology@gmail.com by Monday, December 22, 2008.
