Tennessee Wesleyan College has its very own literary magazine that is published every spring semester, The Springs of Helicon. The magazine is filled with short stories, poetry, and art work from students. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to submit to the magazine as well as alumni. The Springs of Helicon is put together and distributed by students with the help of Dr. Schiavoni.
The class does count as a one hour credit, should you choose to take it, and can be taken up to three times. However, if you do not have room on your undoubtedly busy schedules, you can opt to be part of the magazine staff without taking the course. The staff meets on Wednesdays at noon in Durham 403. Much of the class time is spent exploring our own writing abilities and discussing how we would like the magazine. It is a great opportunity to get in touch with your inner author. It also offers publication, layout, and design experience. As an added bonus being a part of the Springs of Helicon staff shows an ability to work as a team and demonstrates leadership skills, thus making it look great on a resume.
If your interest in the literary magazine falls short of wanting to become part of the staff, you can still submit as much work as you would like featured in the magazine. All submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also drop any hard copies off to Dr. Schiavoni.For more information contact any member of the staff or Dr. Schiavoni. We hope to see you there. Deadline for submissions was February 14th; however, submissions for next year’s magazine are desired. The magazine is expected to be ready for distribution in early April.
