So you want to get published. You’re last name isn’t Rowling or Meyer, and you wouldn’t spend your time writing about angsty teenagers anyway, so what do you do? Luckily, you attend a small liberal arts institution that offers a wide range of outlets just waiting to publish your brilliant words.
The Laurentian Magazine: The Laurentian is St. Lawrence’s literary magazine. Entirely student-run, The Laurentian produces one issue each semester. Each magazine includes fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, art, and photography. If you feel like getting in touch with your creative side, The Laurentian is your outlet. Write a memoir about your travels abroad, submit a photograph of your favorite North Country landscape, or compose a poem about the love interest you’ve been watching from afar all semester long. Whatever your creative medium is, express yourself! To learn more, visit blogs.stlawu.edu/thelaurentianmagazine.
St. Lawrence Review: Feel like getting critical? If so, the St. Lawrence Review is for you. This peer-reviewed journal of literary and film criticism publishes student papers ranging from 5-25 pages. Maybe you wrote a critical analysis about what makes Wes Anderson movies the best things ever, or maybe you’ve got a few bones to pick with Shakespeare. Contact Whitney Bishop at firstname.lastname@example.org or Heather Hartlaub at email@example.com for more information about the St. Lawrence Review.
The Underground: The Underground is a peer-reviewed undergraduate research journal that publishes student work that reflects issues of representation through PCA, film, gender, fine arts, art history, etc…The goal of the journal is to create an outlet which allows St. Lawrence students to share the results of their work with the rest of the academic community. Contact Juraj Kittler at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about The Underground.
Glocal: With a tagline of “think globally, act locally,” Glocal is a student-run journal that publishes interdepartmental work that increases awareness of global issues at a local level. Have something to say about factory farming and how it affects small family farms in the North Country? Interested in writing about the acceptance of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences, and how that’s exemplified (or not) on campus? Send it to Glocal!
The Hill News: Anyone can write for the student newspaper or submit story ideas to the staff. If you see something going on around campus that you don’t like, write about it. If you see something great happening that deserves some recognition and praise, write about it. It’s a great way to engage with the campus community and get your name in print.
