Journal, Sentinel, and Herald field coaching

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

On November 5 and 6, 2010, the Journal, Sentinel, and Herald Department at the Publishing Society welcomed five individuals, all Christian Science practitioners and some teachers from the field, to Boston. The focus? A new JSH pilot program to establish what we’re loosely calling “field coaches.” Just what is a field coach? Well, we spent a good portion of our time together defining the term and exploring what the new coaches would be doing. 

In short, these field coaches will work with you—our worldwide readers and writers—to offer encouragement and support with your submissions to JSH. How many of you have had an idea for an article or testimony, but just didn’t know how to get started or where to go with it? Or perhaps you’ve already written an article, but you needed to bounce it off someone else before submitting it? That’s where the coach comes in. Many of you have worked in just this way with an editor here in Boston, and our goal is to extend this activity farther out so more can benefit—and more of you can be published online, in print, or in some other format. And your submissions can be published more quickly. 

Of course, you don’t have to go through a coach to submit something for publication. You can still send your submissions directly to us as you have in the past, if you wish to. As we said, we’re starting with five coaches, but as the demand for this program expands, we expect to enlarge the ranks of the coaches.
