Indecisive Poet Posted October 28, 2019 Share Posted October 28, 2019 (edited) During undergrad, I "published" a couple of articles in my institution's student-run journals, as well as several poems in its student-run literary journals. My initial thought was that I shouldn't include these on my CV for PhD applications since they are neither peer-reviewed articles nor prestigious literary journals, and it'll probably look like I'm trying to pretend I've published when I really haven't. Am I correct in thinking that they would be a waste of space in (and possibly even a detriment to) my CV, or should I include them just to show that I was engaged in these activities during undergrad? Perhaps I should add that I'll be applying with both a BA and an MA, so even the most recent of these were a couple of years ago. Edit: one of the articles was published in a journal run by the university's writing program faculty, so I suppose that one isn't student-run – but it's also not a peer-review process; the faculty just chooses the best papers written for a particular writing program course to publish.
