Calling All Editors! Exciting Opportunity with WLA

ALKI, the journal of the Washington Library Association, is currently seeking Student Representatives to join the ALKI Editorial Committee.

The term would begin on July 31, 2014, and end on July 31, 2015 (or until the student has graduated). Members of the committee are required to submit 3 articles during the term on a theme that has been chosen for the July, November, and March issues. These articles should be approximately 700 words each. Each issue has a deadline one month before the release of the publication.

As for committee meetings, there will be one face-to-face meeting at the annual WLA conference, where the themes of upcoming issues will be selected. Attendance is not mandatory. There may be other online meetings if necessary.

Joyce Hansen, the editor of ALKI, or Diane Cowles of the Editorial Committee, will send emails to the committee members throughout the year about the topics that may affect librarianship in Washington.

If you enjoy writing and want to get involved with WLA, please send a letter of interest by July 15, 2014 to Diane Cowles ( If you have any additional questions or want to share other exciting editing opportunities, email us at!
