Writing Articles for University Newspapers to Promote the Veggie Lifestyle

Whether you’re writing for a scholarly journal or a school paper, writing in all its forms can be a tremendously useful way to discuss vegetarianism. Moreover, the process of getting your content out there might be easier than you’d think. When I approached the editors of the Baylor Lariat, I expected at least a few hoops to jump through, but it ended up being as easy as submitting a draft, getting sent a few corrections, and then revising a final draft. Before I knew it, my article on the health perspective of a vegetarian diet was on the opinion page of my school paper. It was immensely rewarding to see it there, and I would encourage anyone to do the same if they have the opportunity.

Some things I had to think about were the supposed audience of my article and how it might receive what I had to say about vegetarianism. I wanted to avoid the controversial or any dubious science, yet I still wanted my article to be helpfully informative. I chose to talk about vegetarianism from the health perspective because it’s what I feel is the most palatable of the contentions for going vegetarian, or at least encouraging a plant-based diet.
