Hermes Seeks Submissions (Again)

The Hermes magazine is looking for prose, poems, images and short personal stories. This writing should pertain to problems of “racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transophobia, and unrecognized privilege at Wesleyan.” Virgil Taylor ’15 writes:

The Hermes is calling for short submissions responding to problems of racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and unrecognized privilege at Wesleyan. The impetus for this focus is in response to the sign posted in Usdan after the Holi festival last Friday.

Hermes is also calling for submissions now because it is the time to act and to respond to the Wesleyan administrations’ longstanding lack of progress in addressing our campus’s problems.

This topic is important & difficult, the collective encourages everyone who feels something say something. To speak out is powerful and speaking together can be even more powerful.

Remembering the Blackout

I’m sure that, whether you like it or not, the blackout is on your mind. In light of that (haha, sorry), here’s something that pertains to it:

Virgil Taylor ’15 is looking for pieces of our blackout. If you wrote something down or feel like doing so, send it his way. Or if you made an image, or are making an image, send it his way. You can email questions to vtaylor[at]wesleyan[dot]edu, but submissions should be sent to octoberblackout[at]gmail[dot]com.
