Interested in Writing for Psych News?

To Potential Writers,

Thank you for your interest in Psychology News! We are happy to provide you with some more information about our Psychology Newsletter. The way the process works is that we will have about 3 deadlines throughout the semester, which help develop an APA-style research article to be published in a newsletter. You can also stop by Thomas Hunter 318 to pick up a hard copy of previous publications.

The 3 deadlines look like the following:

-A first submission of a topic and 3 sources (cited, accredited sources) which you are going to use for writing your research article.

-The second deadline will be a first draft, followed by a second draft, and lastly a final draft. Each writer will be assigned an editor who will help, what more, to edit your piece, to make sure that APA-style is being followed and that the article is grammatically & overall in tact. We will respond as quickly and promptly as possible with corrections, comments, or concerns, but we also expect a professional and timely response.

-The final article will be published in our newsletter and celebrated at our end of year Publication Party, which of course writers are invited to take part in.

Seem like a long process, but everything moves quite quick, so you must try to stay on top of deadlines. We settle the dates for deadlines accordingly. So if you are interested, you can get started on your first task of finding a topic you like. If you need any help deciding, or find that you can’t decide, we can also help you pick or assign you a topic. Remember that we are a Psychology Newsletter, so it has to be relevant to the field. That being said, you can still work on something super biopsychology heavy, as long as it’s a researchable topic that makes sense for our newsletter. We will approve the topic before you go into deep writing anyway so don’t feel too worried.

We are very excited to get to work with some inventive writers, and look forward to reading your articles! Please do not hesitate to ask any questions. You can send all inquiries to

Best of luck,

your Editors
