Looking into the future from our launch date point I can't help but think about all of the avenues this journal can take and I'm so excited. Not only does the journal have high potential with each edition but also exponential potential with our Third-Chance Program. Through the program we will be able to help writers and improve their work, and that means more to me than creating a literary journal that just takes and gives nothing back. If we can help one person reach their goals or achieve their dreams then this will all be worth it. Granted, we are giving college students the avenue for publishing their creative works but also to go that one step further would be incredible.
Since we are only in the beginning stages of the Revolving Door Journal's life, we haven't reached the point of bringing everything into this journal that we want to for various reasons. In the future I would love to bring on an intern position for a college student so they can learn about the market of literary journals and publishing world and we will have access to someone who is actually in the demographic we will continue to target. I think this internship program would be very interesting to put together and to work with a student who is interested in the same things we created. We could make this program last four months so the student would have the chance to work on an entire edition while also gaining experience in other aspects of our website and journal.
I can't help but think of all the possibilities this journal holds and I can't believe I am a part of this amazing journal and team!
