As a RhetTech editor, I will collaborate with my team to create this year's RhetTech Journal by building upon writing and editing skills acquired through the School of Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communication.

Declan Sofield ('22)
Editor

Working with the RhetTech team will allow me to practice the writing and editing skills I have been taught through my major here at JMU. By working with students on campus and across the country, I will be able to expand my horizons and explore the most current work being created in the major. Along with RhetTech, I am also editing for the JMU Undergraduate Research Journal (JMURJ) and working as a consultant in the University Writing Center (UWC). In my free time, you can find me camped out in a dining hall, exploring the Valley, or binging decade-old episodes of Survivor

Lindsey Thoman, an undergraduate student at James Madison University, is studying Communications Studies with a minor in Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communication. She has experience in writing, editing, and digital marketing practices. "Writing and editing is one way that I know how to best serve others. I admire the writing and editing process because I believe that what we say and how we say it goes a long way in making an impact." In her free time, Lindsey enjoys being creative and writing articles.

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, Professor Michael Smith, and through the creative energy of our students, RhetTech journal has gone from an idea to a reality. As our first two volumes show, students are working on some highly impressive projects in WRTC around the country. We are so excited to see the submissions we get for volume three!
