Stethoscope Press Seeks Writers

Piers Gelly ’13 (who’s teaching a great student forum on potion-making, btw!!!) sends in an ingenious method of getting your thesis published:

We are Wesleyan’s only student-run press. We publish books by individual student writers, who work one-on-one with our editors all year. We will help take you from idea to creative work to layout to published book. If selected, you will meet fortnightly with your editor to work on your project. The final book will be thirty to fifty pages, beautifully designed, and adorned with a handsome letterpress cover. To submit, please send the following to stethoscopepress(at)gmail(dot)com:

  • A project proposal of one or two paragraphs explaining your idea for your book as well as your interest in publishing a long-format work. Any and all genres accepted.
  • A sample of your previous work. This should be about five pages and in the genre in which you plan to write your book.
  •  Our submission deadline is Sunday, September 30th, so do not delay!

Last year’s books went like hotcakes, but in case you haven’t yet seen one and are curious, there are still some fat stacks at the College of Letters and in the writing lounge.

Deadline: September 30
