Best of Freshman Writing relies on faculty members from across the University College to submit the outstanding student essays that they read in their first-year composition courses: Engl 004, Engl 015, or Engl 030.
Faculty should obtain permission from the student author before submitting. A Publishing Agreement* is signed by the student and the essay is either mailed or email to the editor.
So, it’s easy to submit:
- Identify outstanding student writing.
- Contact the student-writer to receive permission to submit and to obtain a signature on the Publishing Agreement.
- Then either:
Email the essay along with a scanned publishing agreement to Ron George email@example.com
Mail the essay and the publishing agreement to
Penn State Mont Alto
1 Campus Drive
Mont Alto, PA 17237
*The updated publishing agreement will be emailed to faculty along with a request for submissions during each fall semester. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a copy of our publishing agreement.
Submissions are greatly appreciated!
