    8. What do Journeys Editors do?
    We sit around a table, look at your submission, and make snarky comments while judging your piece---At least, that's what people think we do. We actually get trained by a handful of English and Art teachers on campus to properly understand how to analyze a poem or an art piece. We take the time to read a couple of pieces each week and aggressively discuss if the literary or art piece is a proper fit for our magazine.  Trust me, we enjoy reading all of your submissions, and take each submission we receive seriously.
