The Florida Magazine Student Association is a professional organization committed to serving the employment, educational and social needs of University of Florida students interested in pursing a career in magazine writing, editing, designing and/or publishing.
FMSA was founded at UF in 1996. Our parent organization is FMA, the Florida Magazine Assocation. FMSA members are allowed and encouraged, but not required, to join FMA, as it provides valuable connections to and information about the magazine world. The FMSA is also a chapter of Ed2010’s Ed on Campus.
FMSA connects its members to editors of local and national publications and to the faculty from the College of Journalism and Communications. Members have the opportunity to take part in resume critique workshops every semester, listen to inspiring guest speakers and gain a greater knowledge of the magazine world. Meetings and socials are held twice a month.
Meetings alternate between Tuesdays and Fridays at 6:30 p.m. in Weimer Hall.
