Attention all writers at Wesleyan: Stethoscope Press currently seeks writers of any ilk for their 2015 publication cycle. If you’re not familiar with Stethoscope, this is a tremendous opportunity and YOU COULD BE PART OF IT! Kate “Witchy” Weiner ’15 has all the magnificent, seductive, and irresistible details for you:
Stethoscope Press, Wesleyan’s only student-run press, is open for submissions! Stethoscope loves to publish creative, long-form texts: in the past, we’ve published an illustrated guide to the birds of Connecticut, a graphic novel, a collection of short stories and collages, a multimedia memoir, and a novella.This is a year-long commitment that enables you to work one-on-one with an editor from October through late April, as well as workshop your book with the entire press. Writers will also be responsible for the design of their book with the help of Stethoscope’s design team.
To apply, please send us a Word document with:
1) Name, major, and year.
2) A one-page proposal describing your idea for a book. The proposal should be as detailed as possible–please include what you want to do, literary influences, and any other related thoughts. Please also include a couple sentences on why you feel Stethoscope is the best fit for your project. Your book may change over time, but it is important for us to get a sense of your thought process and creative interests.
3) Please also send us 6-8 pages of writing that relates to your proposal or showcases your strengths. Feel free to send one piece or several excerpts.
