See Your Name in Print!
Everybody’s got a story. While the recent issue of RWU Magazine is still fresh on your desk – or coffee table – the publications team is hard at work planning the Spring 2014 issue. Our goal? To bring you the most compelling content possible. And what’s more compelling than you, our readers?
If you’ve ever wanted to see your name in print, a story in RWU Magazine is a great opportunity to share your work – personal or professional – your ideas and your passions. From features like What They Left Behind to a profile of Professor of Philosophy Bob Blackburn to research-based stories about topics such as eating habits and attitudes toward farmers markets among low-income residents in Providence’s Silver Lake neighborhood, even the seed of an idea can spark an evocative story that our 33,000 readers (and counting!) would love to read. No idea is too small.
Think you (or someone you know) should be the subject of a Face to Face profile? Tell us why! Publish a fascinating book recently? We’d love to hear about it. Can you play the xylophone with your toes? Quirky content works, too. If you would want to read about it, we want to hear about it.
There are two simple ways to share your story idea with the RWU Magazine team: Email a brief description and a list of potential sources to firstname.lastname@example.org. Two or three sentences is plenty – just give us enough to understand the essence of the story. Call us at extension 5552; off campus dial (401) 254-5552.
We would be remiss, of course, if we didn’t point out that we might not use every idea we receive – but all ideas will get full consideration and items that don’t make it into the magazine often find homes in other media, such as web stories on PDQ@RWU, the annual President’s Report, media relations outreach or marketing materials. The deadline for submitting a story idea for the Spring 2014 issue is Wednesday, Dec. 18. But remember – with three major publications a year and PDQ@RWU updated with news and events daily we encourage you to share your ideas with us any time. We don’t mind getting bombarded with ideas – don’t hold back!
