Chapter Editor Training

Our chapter editors begin with a four-week training program to learn the ins and outs of online journalism while building their portfolio. Editors learn how to sharpen their editing skills through co-editing assignments and team critiques. Our editors lead by example, offer honest feedback and encourage open communication with their writers in order to continually raise the bar for quality writing. We also connect our editors to professionals in the field through our Google Hangout guest speaker series, helping them build their network through College Magazine.

Our graduates have gone on to careers at Mashable, Seventeen Magazine, Allure, Redbook, Rachel Ray Magazine, and Washingtonian.
