Get Published: Stethoscope Press Seeks Writers

Rebecca Brill ’16 writes in:

Stethoscope Press, Wesleyan’s 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 editor.

Interested? To apply, please send us a Word document with:
1) Name, major, year, and any past writing experience.
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.

If you have any questions, contact Rebecca Brill at rebrill[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Join the Female Hysterics

Lauren Langer ’16 writes in:

I don’t care that you don’t think you’re funny. I don’t care that you don’t “do comedy”. You ARE, and you DO, now.

The Female Hysterics is an all-female comedy collective. There are no auditions. There are no limits. We will meet twice a week to joke around without shame or embarrassment. We will do stand up, we will write sketches, we will laugh, and we will most importantly, create a safe space for any female-identifying student to try comedy or fail spectacularly.

Wesleyan Law & Policy Review Information Session

some pictureless info:

Are you interested in government, public policy or law? If so, you should check out the Wesleyan Law & Policy Review (WLPR)!

Founded in 2014, WLPR is a student-run publication dedicated to publishing legal scholarship and policy proposals by students at Wes. Overall, WLPR exists to provide a forum where students in the liberal arts can conduct independent research on a wide range of issues and, in turn, develop bold yet practical recommendations that advance the public interest.
