Today I am a happy editor! I received creative writing submissions I did not ask for!!
As some of you may know, I am editor-in-chief of HOWL Magazine, the student magazine of the Department of English and Linguistics at the University of Mainz.
Almost two weeks ago, we published our latest issue, “Summer of Love”, with a condom stapled to the cover (I hope to put up an online version soon). The issue was widely recognized and we got positive feedback from different sides. Apparently one teacher liked it a lot and told his creative writing class that HOWL Magazine is cheered big time by contributions.
Actually, this might be a great strategy to get more people to write for HOWL. Now I am curious as to what quality the stories are!
