editorial practicum

Looking for hands-on, practical experience in
editing for publication?

Looking for an extra credit hour, or three?

e-Vision is looking for you.


The e-Vision WRTC 395 practicum offers students hands-on, practical experience in editing for publication. Students enrolled in WRTC 395 meet once weekly for an hour in a seminar setting to discuss, select, and edit submissions for publication in e-Vision.

Though e-Vision accepts new editorial board members in the spring semester, we prefer a one-year commitment to the editorial board starting in the fall semester. Editors earn one credit for their work during the fall semester; editors who remain on the board during the spring semester earn two credits, for a total of three credits per year. Editors may earn as many as six WRTC 395 credits, with three credits applying to WRTC major and minor requirements.

Send a letter of application, detailing your interest in the position, qualifications, and the name and e-mail address of at least one faculty reference to

Faculty references should be familiar with the applicant's writing and critical/evaluative reading abilities. Applications for editorial intern positions must be submitted prior to the beginning of the semester of enrollment.
