The folks over at Assay are doing a big push to include more student writers on their blog, In Present Tense, particularly in their Wednesday Writers to Read series. They are looking for the same kind of analytical reading response students are often assigned. It’s a great way for that work to find an audience outside of the classroom. The editors are looking for strong undergraduate work as well as that of other levels.
See the Submission Guidelines here. The specifics on Wednesday Writers to Read are below.
“Wednesday Writers to Read” (a series published on Wednesdays): tell us about what you’re reading. It can be an old favorite, a newly published book, a text you’re teaching. If somebody has already posted on the book you’re reading, feel free to send in a differing opinion on it. Our goal here is to compile a resource list of texts. You could also write up brief reviews of the nonfiction published in the new issues of literary journals, for this series.”
