English Department Open Mic Ft. Elizabeth Willis


From the world famous English Major’s Committee:

We are excited to invite you to our first open mic night of the year! The open mic is a time for anyone to get up and share their work (poem, stories, plays, etc) with an audience of their peers (and perhaps faculty).  All you have to do is sign up is write your name in a 5 minute slot in the google doc I have attached below or come a few minutes early to the event. This semester’s open mic will be this Friday, October 4 at 7 pm in Downey House Lounge.

We are also honored to announce that Professor Elizabeth Willis will be out headliner! She will start the night by reading her own poetry. And for those of you who are not familiar with her award winning work, get excited by reading  a few of her poems here and here.

Come join us for a wonderful evening of coffee, cookies, and student work. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other passionate writers and lovers of writing. Bring your friends!

Click me! I’m a link to the sign-up google doc!

Date: Friday, October 4
Time: 7 – 9 p.m.
Place: Downey House Lounge

Stethoscope Press Deadline Extension


Alec Harris ’14 writes:

Stethoscope Press is extending the deadline for submissions for both books and chapbooks! Submissions are now due Friday, October 4th at 11:59pm, so do not delay!

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 and beautifully designed. 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.

More after the jump!
