It’s the start of another exciting year for The Warren, and we find ourselves both looking ahead to what the future holds and reflecting on the many paths that have led us here.
We begin by saying ‘farewell’ to the journal’s core founding members—Amelia Nezil, Liam Sarsfield, Morag St. Clair, as well as founding Fiction Editor Megan Welsh. In 2009, these beautiful people came together to establish a journal that aimed to transcend both the confines of solitary study and the divisiveness of specialization. As a result, The Warren would become more than just a journal: it leapt out into the great outdoors and animated an entire community of artists, thinkers, and writers across all disciplines. We cherish the legacy they have left behind and today we ask you to join us in carrying it forward.
Last year, in addition to publishing our third annual issue, we held two wildly successful events with fabulous readings and live music. We also initiated our very own student lecture series, which provides a space for students to talk, rant, and yawp in public. With our fourth issue on the horizon, we’re thrilled to announce the many volunteer positions available at The Warren.
We are currently seeking two executive editors, seven genre editors, and a director of submissions. We’re looking for undergraduate students with verve and self-initiative who share our passion for showcasing the brilliance of fellow students and establishing an open and vibrant creative community. For those who are curators, facilitators, and rabble-rousers at heart, there’s a place for you at The Warren. Introduce yourself; we want to meet you. Head on over to our Volunteer page to learn about the many ways you can get involved.
We look forward to hearing from you.
