Every few semesters, a group of students gathers to test the controversial theory that the best way to make a great magazine is lightning-speed, in a frenzied, weekend-long test of physical and mental stamina. So far we’ve never been wrong.
Interested in helping with Volume III? We are looking for editors, writers, photographers, designers, filmmakers, musicians, and anyone else who wants to be part of this colossal experiment in time limits and adrenaline.
Intrigued? Join Ford Fellow Piers Gelly ’13 in the Downey Lounge at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 16 for a planning meeting. The first people to arrive will receive copies of the magazine’s extremely rare back issues, which went like hotcakes when they were available. For more info, see Volume II, Volume I, and the Facebook event page.
Date: TODAY, Wednesday, October 16
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: Downey House Lounge

Miriam Olenick ’13 writes in about the campus publication most likely to elicit amusing reactions from your parents this weekend (yes, that’s the cover pictured above):
Unlocked, Wesleyan’s art and sexuality magazine, is HAWT off the press and ready for purchase. Copies are $5 a piece, but if you can show me where your work/sexy modeling is you get a free copy!
Sam Maldonado ’13, Stefan Skripak ’13, and I will be selling copies from our respective homes until we get kicked out of this place on Monday. If you’re not here for senior week, Unlocked will be selling again at the beginning of next semester. We’re sorry for the delayed gratification — we had a bit of a struggle with our printers.
For now, contact me at (917) 371 8501, Sam at (413) 328 5406, or Stefan at (215) 527-9002 and we’ll figure out a time/place to get you a copy.
Contact: Sam Maldonado ’13, Stefan Skripak ’13, or Miriam Olenick ’13
Cost: $5 an issue
Hangman’s Lime has a dope opportunity for all you instagrammers photographers out there:
Take black and white photos? Want them to be featured on the cover of a poetry magazine? Hangman’s Lime (Wesleyan’s oldest all-poetry magazine) is looking for a black and white picture to use for its cover. Photos should probably not be close-ups of a person; otherwise, most things will be considered.
From Julia Bond ’13:

It’s up. At noon today, after precisely 48 hours of frenzied writing, organizing, editing, copy-editing, layout
sleeping, and God knows what else, the second annual 48 hour magazine project drew to a close. The magazine’s writing, artwork, video, and design (both online and in print) was entirely produced by a team of Wesleyan students. The theme is Inside Out, and the magazine is available online now (check it here) and in print around campus in the near future.
Here’s a note from the editors:
John Henry died with a hammer in his hand fighting machines. We used them to make a magazine that peers into the unseen spaces of the world around us: dreams, pubes, municipal charities, buildings, entrails, and the human heart. We spewed our innards, like the belchings of Vesuvius, for you to look upon.
The best thing about making a magazine speedily is that it turns out extra good. Lucky for you, that’s exactly what we did! Volunteers, some who had no previous experience, came together to create this project over the course of two days. The idea was to use the severe time constraint to induce creative frenzy. This publication is the result.
Are you an artist that recently (or not so recently) dropped some hot fiyaaaah? Then you should submit your music to Waves, Wesleyan’s new music publication. Waves is taking music submissions to be featured on its new website, which launched Saturday. If you want another platform for more ears to hear your music, submit mp3s with a photo, social media information, and a brief blurb about yourself to weswavesmagazine(at)gmail:
On a campus brimming with musical talent, it is only right that there is a publication on hand to document Wesleyan University’s vibrant and eclectic music scene. Waves is a group of Wesleyan students dedicated to providing a vivid illustration of the remarkable artists, bands, acapella groups, radio shows, ensembles, visiting acts and everything else music that Wesleyan has to offer. In addition to documenting the on-campus music scene, Waves will feature pieces about new releases and upcoming artists in the external, non-Wesleyan world of music. Waves will also be coming out with a full-length magazine featuring artist profiles, album reviews, and longer feature articles about everything and anything related to music. Check the site periodically if you’re looking for some music literature or if you’re in need of some new artists to listen to.
Pyxis, Wesleyan’s only interdisciplinary humanities journal, has a pretty sweet compendium of corporeal lexicon for your perusal. It also wants you to submit your academic writing related to their theme of BODIES.
Bodies. We all have one. Or do we? What is a body?
Body: (n) The complete physical form of a person or animal; the assemblage of parts, organs, and tissues that constitutes the whole material organism.
Body: (v) To give form, shape, or physical presence to; to embody.
While these are two definitions of “body,” the body, as a concept, has many more connotations. Scholars, for example, have discussed the ways in which the body figures into politics, religion, philosophy (e.g., mind/body dualism), performance, visual art, and science. Pyxis, a new undergraduate journal for the humanities, is interested in seeing how different disciplines and approaches in the humanities have defined, criticized and challenged the notion and interpretations of bodies.
Alex Wilkinson ’13 has decided he wants to get involved with writing on campus for a change:
The Argus Magazine is Wesleyan’s only student-produced publication specializing in long-form nonfiction and journalism. By showcasing creative, engaging pieces from a variety of academic fields and personal backgrounds, we seek to channel the diverse array of student perspectives, experiences, and knowledge endemic to the intellectual vitality of our campus. Fundamental to this endeavor is an emphasis on collaboration between writers and editors, a process we feel is essential to producing polished, innovative work.
If you’re interested in writing, editing, or taking photography for The Argus Magazine, come talk to us. We hope to see you tomorrow!
Date: Friday, September 28
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Been doing a little bit of thinkin’ this summer? Need to share it with the world? Not friends with anyone who runs The New Inquiry? You should probably befriend Annie Choi ’14:
This is a call to those at home that have some free time this summer to contribute to an emerging philosophy magazine—NUAGE.
This is a new philosophically informed magazine/blog meant to showcase and produce pieces that are thought-provoking and intellectually stimulating while still being entertaining (no small feat, but c’mon Wes, pull it off). Art, music, pop culture, your own life—all are open topics and welcome for submission. Think à la David Foster Wallace’s Consider the Lobster. Explore what interests you, and if you delve deeper than the superficial, that’s perfect!
If you have any free time to jot a few lines about a painting or find yourself interested in a social analysis of a TV show you’ve been watching non-stop this summer, please contribute! The submissions have no length requirement. If you find yourself mulling over a topic in your head, write it down and send it to nuagemagazine[a]gmail[d]com. Spread the word to your friends—this is by no means a Wesleyan exclusive publication.
