Method magazine wants YOU

Alice Goldsmith ’10 (is she aware she has a family cinema?) is soliciting submissions for Method, that online blogozine that started up last spring and got an overhaul this semester.


Method Magazine wants more writers and photographers for the blog and print magazine. Also, we encourage creative submissions (doodles, art, creative writing). Email methodmagazine(at)gmail(dot)com with any questions or creative submissions.

Any online weblog-zine that names my radio cohost one of the Five Names to Know is OK by me. Also, I’m kind of obsessed with Theodore Roosevelt at this point in my life, so kudos to Alice for sending in that photo. Check out his striking resemblance to a jaguar in this picture.

Method Mag overhauled

Method-Home-ImageMethod, the Wesleyan lifestyle and culture blog/magazine formerly known as “Method Life“, has undergone a major overhaul since its inception last semester.

Now with a new site, methodmagazine.com, it seems poised to make a well-coordinated splash in the admittedly limited world of Wesleyan media.

Created by the cohort of Robert Alvarez ’11, Ivy Menderson ’11, Kendall McKinnon ’10, Alice Goldsmith ’10, Emma Drew ’10, Sofi Newmyer ’10, and Jonna Humphries ’10, Method now has a larger staff with an apparently wider scope and more consistency than last semester.

Current content includes articles on The Universe, how to meet paper deadlines, the ubiquitous-last-weekend Disfarmer exhibition, and eBay finds; a dorm room spotlight; and “Faces of the Flu“, a profile of students currently quarantined with swine flu.

Looks good! Expect a new print edition of Method Mag by the end of the semester.

Submit to Hermes for its September issue

The good folks who put together the Hermes, the Wes magazine that’s now 38 years old, are already laying plans for their September issue, and are looking for your submissions. Writes Katie Shelly ’09:

Hermes is Wesleyan University’s longest running progressive publication. It was founded in 1975 by a group of student activists as an alternative to the school newspaper, the Argus (the name being a rather blunt reference to the Greek myth in which Hermes slays the hundred-eyed beast, Argus).

We publish five to seven issues a year, with material ranging from campus life to photo essays to short fiction and opinion pieces, but we tend to focus on activism and social commentary from a variety of viewpoints.

Hermes is organized in a collective, non-hierarchical, informal manner. We have no editors-in-chief, no restrictions on staff, and no censorship—all decisions are made by the entire staff. Hermes is a forum for ideas. Anyone is welcome to participate.

Hermes is generally a progressive magazine, but we’re we’re open to all angles, bents and leanings. Writings, drawings, photos, puzzles… you could write your thoughts on the election… or any topic you want to get people on campus thinking about… you could publish an ad for your publication/initiative, club/project… you could write about some great organization that needs volunteers… you could review an art show or concert you went to… or submit photos of it… you could submit a paper you wrote that you’re proud of… you could submit your favorite recipe… you could write about the most amazing thing you saw abroad… you could critique whatever it is that bugs you about Wesleyan/beyond/both… you could write an open letter to Roth… really, submit!
