Join a Student Journal

Volunteering to work on a student journal gives you a chance to learn more about publishing, whether your goal is to improve your writing or your editing skills. Having the experience listed on your transcript is impressive to potential employers—and you will make a contribution to the university by helping your fellow students polish and publish their writing and by making their ideas available to other students. To participate, contact the student editor of the journal you are interested in (who can also tell you more about the journal) or show up at their meeting time. It’s that simple.

Register for Credit!

You can receive an hour of credit for your volunteer work on a student journal by enrolling in ELang 351R; the journal meetings will be your class meetings and most of your grade comes from the work you will already be doing for the journal; the only other requirements are to submit time logs and to write two short papers. Having ELang 351R on your transcript makes it easy to show potential employers that you are serious about learning about publishing (after all, you volunteered your time to work on a student journal) and it indicates that you received good training and feedback in your journal experience. For more information about the journals or the class, check with Professor Jacob Rawlins (4051 JFSB, 422-2144, jacob_rawlins@byu.edu). Some departments that sponsor student journal also offer credit for volunteering through enrollment in classes offered by the department. Check with the academic advisor for the journal you are interested in.
