You can also join the team of student editors who get valuable internship experience in editing and publishing a literary journal. You'll be adding one more stand-out experience to your resume, as well as gaining new friends and colleagues. Editors handle sections in fiction, nonfiction and poetry, producing about 50 pages of creative writing that is showcased at the university's annual Spring Literary Festival.
