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!

Applications are due Monday, September 16th!

Stethoscope [Gently] Presses You to Help ’em Publish

Wesleyan’s Stethoscope Press has brought you entirely student-published literature, artwork, and appropriate Wesleying post images for more than a year and a half now. Piers Gelly ’13 hopes you’ll give back:

Stethoscope is doing a fundraiser to pull together some last minute funds! Our books are mostly written and about to go to print, but we’re a few dollars short.

We’ll also be doing a bake/d sale at Zonker Harris Day.

With a description this succinct, what’s not to love? …the description, you say? Ugh, rude. Here’s a little more, from the Indiegogo site:

Each year, we select several writers who work one-on-one with an editor to produce a book of original work. This year, we’re printing five books: a novella, a collection of poems, two collections of short stories, and a book of essays. […]

Please consider donating to Stethoscope! Any amount, however small, means a lot. It costs $4.40 to print one copy of any one book, so by donating just $10, you’ll be funding two whole books. For $22, you’ll be supporting one copy each of all five books.

We are offering some great rewards for donations. Take a look!

Show your support to Stethoscope by next Monday, Aprill 22, if you’d like to help out.

Stethoscope Reading-in-Progress

Thesis? Pfft. Five students are writing books. Piers Gelly ’13 has more:

Come to Espwesso this Friday to hear new work from Stethoscope’s five writers, all of whom will wow you! These people are writing entire books over the course of this academic year, and they are off to a hot, hot start. In alphabetical order:

NATE DOLTON-THORNTON ’15 will read from his beguiling philosophical novella, which is set in California.
JOSH KRUGMAN ’14 will read us some poems, possibly from a unique liquid podium.
RACHEL PINCUS ’13 will read from her short fiction about Cold War-era intrigue.
KATE WEINER ’15 will read some short fiction on the deceptively simple theme of home.
AMY ZHANG ’15will read some nonfiction about China, America, and family situations in which the twain have met.

Refreshments will be severed!

Date: Friday, December 7
Time: 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Place: Espwesso

There will be a Q+A after the reading.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Do you want to publish a book?

Stethoscope Press, Wesleyan’s only student-run press that publishes collections from individual students, is seeking project submissions.
