The Jaded Basil Seeks Submissions

The lovely Kristen Raddatz ’13 brings a super spiffy writing opportunity to you all:

The Jaded Basil wants your creative writing!

We are Wesleyan’s new online literary magazine, and we publish fiction of any kind – all literary styles, genres, subjects, and forms are welcome. We publish monthly issues, and we update our blog regularly with random goodness that we find on the interwebs. Our goal as a literary magazine is to provide Wes writers with an opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced editor, improve their writing, and see their work published. Also, of course, to delight and stretch the imagination. You can find us HERE.
