Why You Should Join the “McKendree Review”


BY MINDY ALLEN & KIMBERLY BENNETT

cropped-town-gown-picture.jpgHave you ever considered writing articles for a newspaper or even joining the staff? Do you like writing in general? Do you have a lot to say but have no idea how to share your opinions?

When an article gets written for the Review, it goes through the process of editing and then sometimes gets sent back to the author for revision. Whether you are on the editing side of the process or on the receiving side, it can improve your writing. Proficient writing is an underrated skill for any major from education to business. For example, what if you were not hired for your dream job because your writing did not meet the employer’s standards?

The benefits from joining the McKendree Review are endless:

  • Editing other people’s writing
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Learning about and designing newspaper layouts
  • Expanding computer skills
  • An experience to include in your résumé.
  • Provides Leadership opportunities
  • Offers Conferencing opportunities

If you are interested, send the Review an email (mckreview@mckendree.edu) or find us at the Involvement Fair on Sept. 4 from 11 AM to 2 PM.

You do not have to be an English major / minor or a Journalism minor in order to join the Review.

If you are interested, feel free to come to our first meeting on Sept. 11 in Clark Lounge, 3:00 PM!
