As an inaugural editor of the RhetTech Journal, I have been given the opportunity to explore design and genre without limitations or expectations. As the RhetRech Editorial Board begins working on volume two, I am excited to continue editing and publishing insightful scholarly research from across the country.

My name is Shayla Brown and I work on RhetTech with five others to reach out and recruit work from student writers to submit to the journal. Our multimodal design is a great way to gain experience and exposure for students like myself. RhetTech takes on a diverse variety of submissions and is filled with interesting and informative pieces. I really enjoy being on RhetTech's team and doing my part to make the journal as creative as possible.

Dr. Cathryn Molloy
Faculty Adviser

JMU's School of WRTC has a long history of hosting a student-run journal through our program. RhetTech--its most recent iteration--leverages our expansive curriculum in writing, rhetoric, and technical communication to build a team of editors who've successfully solicited a wide variety of content from students working on related work around the country. With the help of our academic unit head Dr. Traci Zimmerman and through the creative energy of our students, RhetTech journal has gone from an idea to a reality.
