We encourage you to submit any essays or major assignments that you wrote during one of this school year's English 101 courses for possible publication in Interpolations, the Academic Writing Program's online journal of outstanding student work. We invite submissions of excellent quality from any of your English 101 assignments. You do not need your teacher's permission to submit an essay; however, instructors who wish to submit students' essays must receive permission from those students to do so.
Submissions are reviewed by the journal's editorial board. Our primary criterion for selection is the presence of compelling ideas that are developed in a coherent, well expressed manner. If your essay is selected for consideration towards eventual publication in the journal, you will be asked to complete a multi-step editorial process. After final editorial approval, the selected essays will be included in the journal's online publication. If for any reason, your submission does not upload successfully, please email your submission directly to Managing Editor Scott Eklund at email@example.com and include your name and University of Maryland I.D. number.
