VOICES Writing Gallery

USA TODAY invites college writers and journalists to submit their work to our gallery in the National Gallery of Writing. Through this gallery, we hope to build and support a community of young writers who will become our next generation of reporters and editors. USA TODAY will display the best submissions in our gallery. At the end of each month, we will choose the top three submissions of the month for review by one of our editors. If the three student authors permit it, we will post the feedback from our editor in the gallery so that other college writers can gain insights from it. Why should you submit your work? • To publish your best work and gain visibility for it. • To have staff at USA TODAY take a look at what you can do. • If selected, to get feedback on your writing by an editor from the nation’s #1 newspaper. • To be able to state on your resume that your work has been published in USA TODAY’s gallery in the National Gallery of Writing. • To be a part of USA TODAY’s community of up-and-coming journalists. How can you submit your work? Submit your work to our gallery at http://galleryofwriting.org/galleries/114339. Questions? Go to the gallery at http://galleryofwriting.org/galleries/114339 or email the gallery curator, Dr. Sara Davis, at sdavis@usatoday.com.

The “Featured” piece in the gallery provides the editor’s comments on and the titles of the pieces selected the previous month. You can browse the gallery to read the pieces. 10. When is my piece eligible to be selected for review by an editor? It is only eligible for the month in which it was originally submitted.
