Ethan Hoffman ’14 sends a rather brusque email request to “Please post the text below w/ photo ASAP.” So here it is:
Interested in getting involved in Wesleyan journalism or activism? Frustrated by the current state of campus news and want to cover the issues that the Argus won’t cover, or write in styles or forms that ‘objective neutrality’ says are verbotten?
Interested in helping to relaunch Wesleyan’s longest-running independent student publication and to re-create a magazine that’s hard-hitting, funny, subversive and well-researched?
Join The Hermes! Wesleyan’s magazine of political, critical and creative thought, and the longest running progressive publication on campus. We are not beholden to the administration, and cover campus news, culture and politics without sacrificing our journalistic integrity for access to interviews with high ranking university officials.
The Hermes is run in a collective, democratic spirit and ALL are welcome to join, regardless of previous experience with publishing, writing, etc.. Whether you want to participate just a little as a contributing writer or artist, or get involved in the core staff as a section or column writer, a web-designer, a distribution manager, a copy-editor or a layout manager, we want you to get involved!
Email wesleyanhermes[at]gmail[dot]com to get put on our email list. In your email, be sure to mention what kind of work you would like to do for the Hermes.
Our first all staff meeting is this Wednesday (tomorrow) at 8pm in the Hermes office at the UOC (that’s 190 High Street, right next door to the residence formerly known as Beta).
If you want to submit an article or piece of visual art to the Hermes, email wesleyanhermes[at]gmail[dot]com with “submission” in the subject line, and we’ll be sure to get back to you promptly.
The (reincarnate) Hermes
Date: Wednesday, September 17
Time: 8 PM
