Call for Editors: The Laureate

The Lee Honors College is seeking applicants to serve as Editor in Chief for the 2015-16 issue of The Laureate. For 14 years, the honors college has published this distinguished literary journal.

The editor is responsible for soliciting, reading and selecting poetry, prose and art/photography to be included in the issue. This important work may serve as the editor’s honors thesis, as it is a yearlong endeavor. The ideal candidate will have a passion for literature and creative writing. To submit your resume and letter of interest, or for additional information, please contact Becky Cooper (becky.cooper@wmich.edu).
