Writers - Research, Write, Rant & Rail
We are looking
for college student writers and recent graduates who are
interesting in getting published. We are willing to help, coach
and edit the work. We ask that writers tell us what they would like
to write about before they start. We are not offering pay, but
we will provide credit and a link back to the writer's home page.
We want you to express yourself about the things you know and the
things that interest you. Go ahead, write something about your interests,
your school, student life, your major,
your work, dating, hobbies, sports, rant or whatever. If you prefer
we can assign a story to you. For more information see the guidelines
below or to the right.
