Opportunities

  • Students are given many opportunities to send and present papers to national and state writing conventions.
  • Education students can go overseas to teach on mission trips during the spring and summer.
  • Renowned authors, poets, and songwriters hold creative workshops for students during Giving Voice: A Festival of Writing and the Arts. This is a great opportunity to get critiques on personal creative writing and research papers or ask questions about the fields of writing, editing, and publishing.
  • Gain valuable work and editorial experience by working in the Writing Center. Students working in the Writing Center help other students brainstorm topic ideas, edit papers, fix grammatical errors, and polish up their research papers.
  • Students can learn about editorial work, magazine layout, and publishing by working on JBU's student-led literary magazine, Shards of Light.
  • Work as a teaching assistant at the Summer Language Institute in Lithuania.
