LURe Staff Editor Application
This the general application for students interested in working on UWG's undergraduate research journal as a Staff Editor.
Staff Editors work extracurricularly, content and line editing submissions for the journal as well as helping organize and participate in events throughout the school year. They can submit 1 essay to the journal when submissions are open.
Personal E-mail (optional)
In case you graduate or if we are unable to reach you from your school e-mail.
Phone number (optional)
Do you have a contact preference?
Phone / Text
Would you be interested in a LURe Group Chat?
Most likely through the app GroupMe, a group chat would allow everyone to quickly receive immediate updates/changes regarding the journal or meetings, or provide a space to ask/answer questions.
Sure, but not through GroupMe
What is your major and minor?
What year are you?
When is your anticipated graduation date?
Please provide a short description of yourself (~50 words) in THIRD PERSON that may be included on the LURe website/social media. The information may include your hobbies, family/pets, favorite literary genre, period, author, and/or text (including TV shows or movies), personal/academic accomplishments, and current or post-college goal(s). Feel free to include anything you wish here.
Are you able and willing to put in the time required to be a LURe Editor?
The amount of time typically spent working for LURe varies. Some weeks there won't be any work, and we expect the average workload to take 2-3 hours of your time a week, but busier weeks could require 4-5 hours. There are two required meetings, one in Fall and one in Spring, where editors will receive training. We hope to have a reliable team who is fully aware of the workload and is willing to contribute to the journal's success.
Are you familiar with Google Apps?
LURe utilizes Google Docs and Google Drive to store and view author submissions. Editors are encouraged to utilize the comment feature and required to use suggested changes (track changes) to content and line edit. If you are not familiar with Google Apps, we will show you how to utilize these features at our meetings.
Do you have any ideas for possible fundraising?
In the past, LURe held Used Book Sales and Spirit Nights at American Pie to raise money for a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. What are some of your ideas to help raise money?
