Become an Editor

Satori not only publishes student work—it’s edited by students, too.

As an editor, you’ll get valuable hands-on editing experience and learn about the publishing process for literary and fine art presses.

Editors will develop a theme for the magazine and select submissions. You will also design a layout that aligns with the theme.

You can do all this and more while earning credit by enrolling in ENG 324: Projects in Writing and Language.
