I was an associate editor for the 2017 Mindwaves and Compass literary journal. In this position as an associate editor I:
- helped select pieces to be put onto a shortlist
- read over the manuscripts of both Mindwaves and Compass
- edited the manuscripts for style, content and grammar
I was also published in the 2017 edition of Mindwaves with a short creative non-fiction narrative titled “The Pool Party”.
What is Mindwaves and Compass?
The Professional Writing and Communication department (PWC) at the University of Toronto Mississauga annually publishes two journals – Mindwaves and Compass. These journals contain high-quality creative non-fiction pieces collected from the UTM community.
Mindwaves is a literary journal that publishes creative non-fiction narratives.
Compass is a scientific journal that publishes research based pieces which may include interviews, scientific reviews, historical accounts and finance or community-related informative pieces that are well-explained and written in a style understandable by every person, regardless of their field of study.
