From the beautiful Sadie Renjilian ’17:
Date: December 8th through January 31st
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

Submitted by Sarah Dash ’14:
Historical Narratives is a peer-edited journal of history papers. Once a year, we publish a book (usually somewhere between 150 and 200 pages) of 4-6 history papers written by our peers. As editors, we solicit papers and meet a few (usually two or three) times each semester. We read through the papers we get and eventually whittle it down to a final 8-12 papers that we deliberate about in the spring semester to ultimately decide which papers we publish.
If you like history, join us! There are only 2-3 meetings each semester, you’ll get a chance to read interesting history papers and, depending on the crop we get, the opportunity to argue passionately to defend the papers you like and ultimately shape the journal.
We’ll be having a preliminary meeting at 9:30 PM TODAY in Allbritton 304. We’ll field any questions you may have and will get the ball rolling on our submission drives. Come by if you’re interested, or email one of the editors-in-chief: Sarah Dash ’14, sdash[at]wesleyan[dot]edu; Ali Ozols ’14, aozols[at]wesleyan[dot]edu; or Brendan O’Donnell ’14, bzodonnell[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

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.
Stethoscope Press would like all aspiring novelists, playwrights, and literary draughtsmen to be aware of the extended deadline. Submission are now due Friday, October 5th at 11:59 pm. For those of you who don’t even know what Stethoscope is all about, Pierce Gelly ’13 is happy to explain:
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, beautifully designed, and adorned with a handsome letterpress cover. To submit, please send the following to stethoscopepress(at)gmail(dot)com:
For more information, see Stethoscope’s first call for submissions.
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!
