Welcome to The Worcester Journal, a new magazine for new writers.
The Worcester Journal is a magazine of excellent writing by new writers. We reach out to all promising and talented writers in Central Massachusetts and beyond, whether or not they are connected to educational institutions, and help them produce, edit, publish, and distribute their work in an attractive, professional form. The Journal will also feature the work of young photographers.
Support in the process of writing and publication will be available from the Editor, from Assistant Contributing Editors carefully selected from collegiate internship programs, and from members of the Editorial Board, all of whom are established professionals in the fields of writing and communication.
The Worcester Journal will provide an authentic outlet for new writing. Teaching writing to college students over many years has persuaded me that the best way to encourage new writers to produce work of substance, interest, and quality is to expose their work to a real-world readership that goes beyond the usual audience of a single, often over-worked instructor. We would be delighted to work in any capacity with teachers of English and writing instructors to help their students publish in the Journal.
We publish all forms of writing—nonfiction, fiction, essays, reviews, and poetry. The emphasis, however, is on thoroughly researched and creatively presented nonfiction that is interesting, insightful, entertaining, and useful.
We are most grateful to the Judy and Tony King Foundation for supporting this project, and to Bancroft School, which has provided a welcoming home for the Journal.
