We would love to see you attend the Electrostatic Showcase on Wednesday, April 23rd from 6-10pm at the Wheeler Arts Center in Fountain Square.

For the second showcase, the university and local communities are invited to take part in the following educational and arts-related activities.

HEY. If you want to see me this Monday in Pennsylvania, I’ll be at Susquehanna University for the RiverCraft launch. The event begins in Isaacs Auditorium at 7:30pm, and I’ll be reading from Last Call in the City of Bridges. Hope to see you all there.

The UIndy Publishing Internship Network (PLUS: A Call For More Presses/Journals)

uindy-schwitzer-student-center-with-flowers

I’m so excited to announce that the UIndy English department will be teaming up with a large group of presses and journals over the next few years to offer our students onsite and offsite internships with organizations based in Los Angeles and Manhattan and hopefully everywhere else in between. This builds heavily off the work of Prof. Kevin McKelvey, and over the upcoming summer and fall, we’re placing our students into internships with Boss Fight Books, Braddock Avenue Books, and a host of other magazines and presses we shouldn’t announce just quite yet. I’m hoping to extend and build connections with other presses and journals over the coming months, and if you’re interested in having either an onsite or offsite intern in the fall, spring, or summer, please do not hesitate to contact me at panes@uindy.edu. This is an amazing opportunity for our students to get hands on learning in the publishing industry, but it’s also a good chance for them to show exactly how much they can do for you.
