Editorial Services

You have a story to tell. University Communications’ editorial team will help you connect with your audience—whether it’s students, colleagues, alumni, donors, or community members—by bringing that story to life. Staff will work with you to articulate your vision and messages in a concise and compelling manner.

Editors and writers craft effective messages; deliver information and ideas; and edit and/or review University communications for accuracy, style, and consistent messaging. They team with designers to concept and produce targeted communications—from email announcements to website content to admission materials. The staff researches, interviews, and produces stories for print and digital publications such as eBlue and Drake Blue, the biannual magazine of Drake University.
