Join Policy Perspectives!

 

Policy Perspectives, TSPPPA’s student-run journal, is recruiting Associate Editors for the print journal and Staff Writers for the blog!

 

ASSOCIATE EDITORS will be responsible for overseeing the editorial process for one academic article from September 2016 to March 2017. As an associate editor, you will edit and provide feedback on an article, communicate regularly with journal leadership and the article’s Faculty Reviewer, and attend two editorial workshops. You will also be part of an amazing team of TSPPPA students and faculty!

 

STAFF WRITERS will be responsible for creating blog content every 4 to 6 weeks. As a staff writer, you will produce content for the blog (at least 2 pieces per semester) or may solicit it from others. You will have the freedom to write about any policy issue you choose and are encouraged to explore new interests.

 

To apply for either position upload your resume through this form. The Associate Editor application also requires an editing task, which could take up to an hour to complete. For the Staff Writer position, please upload a 2 – 3 page writing sample (of any style of writing), and 3 ideas for blog content. Applications are dueSaturday, September 16th at 11:59 p.m. EST. All applicants will hear back by Wednesday, September 28.

The blog site is here: briefpolicyperspectives.org. If you have any questions, please email us at polpersp@gwu.edu or briefpolicyperspectives@gmail.com, or stop by MPA 602A during our open office hours on Thursday, September 1, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. We look forward to your submissions!
