We’re happy you’re here and interested in learning about writing, art, the editorial process, and how you can pursue a career in writing or art!

The Here. student editorial board is for high school students in grades 9-12 who attend school in Southeast Missouri and are interested in growing as a creative writer or artist and delving deeper into what it means to edit a magazine. The student editorial board will be made up of a small group of student writers and artists from across the Southeast Missouri region who will read each piece of writing and look at each piece of art that is submitted for consideration of publication in the magazine. They will then score each piece in order to decide which pieces we include in the publication. If the sound of that excites you, we want to hear from you.

Before you apply, though, you might be wondering—what does being on a student editorial board entail?

In light of COVD-19, we will follow the safety procedures put in place by Southeast Missouri State University, which include social distancing within workspace areas and wearing a mask during the workshops. We will also take extra precautions to sanitize work areas.

If you haven’t yet, take a few minutes to explore the website so you get a feel for what we’re about—that’s a good practice to get into no matter what you’re applying for. Then, head back to this page and tell us about yourself:
