Join Inventio’s Student Editorial Board

Dear English Undergraduates, 

As many of you know, Inventio is excited to announce that all is going smoothly to begin working on Volume 8 of our research publication! As spring semester registration nears, I would like to invite you to consider joining the student editorial board as we look to train the next generation of students to carry on the journal. Please see the call for application below: 

If you are looking for hands-on professional experience, writing improvement, or just a worthwhile project to be a part of, please consider joining Inventio’s student editorial board. Inventio is the multidisciplinary undergraduate research journal at the Catholic University of America. Published every spring, it showcases the best undergraduate papers written in classrooms. The journal is staffed by a group of students who oversee the paper selection, copyediting, production, promotion, and various other aspects of the journal. 

This spring, we would like you to consider joining the team. Working on this journal gives undergraduates a serious opportunity for professional development, especially in writing and publication. Editors, marketing professionals, and team managers are all highly in-demand professionally: Inventio gives you an opportunity to master these abilities. 

Students on the editorial board will enroll for HSLS 328/UGS 328. This is a full three credit course that counts for the writing minor! In addition, honors students may use this course as part of an honors track in Liberal Studies. 

You can find the application at Inventio’s webpage: open positions and their descriptions are listed, including all the necessary elements of the application. Applications close November 15.

This is a unique opportunity to foster a healthy culture of academic excellence and admiration for all the hard work done by the youngest members of our University researchers: undergraduates and all their friends. Please consider joining the team!

Thank you, 

Javier Mazariegos
