Be Part of a Published Interview in Policy Perspectives

webinar_QA-GraphcPolicy Perspectives, Trachtenberg School’s student-run journal, is now accepting interview proposals for Volume 22!

We welcome all current and former Trachtenberg students, whether they are pursuing or have completed their master’s degree, their doctorate, or a certificate, to submit an interview proposal to Policy Perspectives. In order to showcase the work of as diverse a group of people as possible, we do not accept proposals from individuals who have already published work in Policy Perspectives.

In approximately 500 to 1,000 words, your interview proposal should identify a person involved in public policy or public administration that you wish to interview, explain why the person is significant, and lay out a realistic plan to conduct the interview. We do not have specific content requirements, but we suggest reviewing the two interviews that Policy Perspectives has published in past volumes (with TSPPPA alumni Andrew DiRosa and Admiral Thad Allen) to get a sense of what might be appropriate.

Note that you may only submit one interview proposal for consideration. Furthermore, in order to review submissions as fairly as possible, we ask that you submit your proposal anonymously. To do so:

  1. Upload your interview proposal and a brief writing sample here with your name and any other identifying information removed from the file.
  2. Send an email with your name and proposed interviewee to polpersp@gwu.edu with the subject line “Volume 22 Interview Proposal.”

Submissions are due by 11:59 PM on Monday, October 6. Everyone who submits an interview proposal will hear back by Tuesday, October 14. Note that you may not submit an interview proposal to Policy Perspectives if you submitted an article that was selected or if you have been chosen to be an Associate Editor. Also note that you may not submit proposals for both an interview and a book review. If you have any questions, please email us at polpersp@gwu.edu or stop by MPA 602A during our open office hours on Thursday, September 4, from 4:30-6:30p.m. We look forward to your submissions!

– Anne Kruse and Christine Mellen, Editors-in-Chief
