Do you have a passion for writing? Would you like to gain more writing experience? Then why not write for the Department of English and American Studies’ blog?
We are currently looking for student writers to write about a variety of topics, ranging from their experiences studying English at the University of Klagenfurt to their top language learning tips.
A typical post for the blog is approximately 400-500 words. As all articles will be proofread by a member of staff in the English Department, this is a great opportunity to receive feedback on a text and learn more about the writing process. In addition to providing a text, students should also include a photograph with their article that can be used on the blog. Please note that it is important that writers own the rights to any photographs they submit, and they must have permission from any people shown in the photograph for their image to be shared online.
Students’ blog posts will be seen by anyone visiting the Department’s homepage, and writers will be able to share their posts with friends and family across their social media by using the sharing tools available (including Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram). For students who are hoping to go into a career in writing and publishing this is a great opportunity to gain some experience and develop their CV.
Whether you are a new student in the Department or an alumnus, we are looking forward to hearing from you!
If you are interested in writing for the blog, or if you have any questions, please contact Natilly Macartney at natilly [dot] macartney [at] aau [dot] at .
