RhetTech Submission Guidelines

We accept submissions from young scholars in the Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communication (WRTC) program at JMU as well as from students in comparable, stand-alone programs across the United States. We also welcome and encourage submissions from first-year writers. 

Submissions are accepted during the fall semester of each academic year, and each new issue is published near the end of the spring semester.

Why submit?

  • A chance to be published in a peer-reviewed journal
  • An opportunity to start a dialogue with other student writers
  • Exposure in a national undergraduate journal
  • Bragging rights
  • Feedback from a dedicated team of editors

Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed.


Please submit alphabetic text essays in MLA or APA style. Include a "References" or "Works Cited" page with multimodal submissions.
