DMV Student Journal Symposium for Literary and Research Publications

The DMV Student Journal Symposium for Literary and Research Publications, held on April 26, 2024, was the first of a proposed annual symposium of undergraduate and graduate student-led journals. This event provided opportunities for all those interested in student publications to engage in interactive workshops and roundtable conversations, hear from plenary speakers and student panelists, and connect with fellow university journals in the DC area. We aimed to foster conversation on best editorial, leadership, and community practices and discover how to support student publications. Topics included sustainable leadership, ethics, diversity, and navigating AI in submissions.

The inaugural symposium was held on Friday, April 26, 2024, 1:00-4:30 pm, at the National Churchill Leadership Center, Gelman Library, at the George Washington University’s Foggy Bottom Campus. The event is free; pre-registration is required.
