From The Well House
What is From the Well House?
From the Well House is, as the name suggests, the IU-Kokomo Review of Arts and Sciences. What this means in a practical sense is that we are a literary, scholarly, and art publication that was formed to showcase the talents of budding as well as established artists and writers from all over the world. We are currently publishing one print issue (spring) and one online issue (fall) per academic year.
Who are the staff members?
From The Well House staff consists of students from a variety of disciplines as well as our faculty advisor, Dr. Eva White.
What do you do?
Each fall, we celebrate the past spring issue by having a From the Well House art exhibit in the campus art gallery. The exhibit opens with a “Live Issue,” featuring the artists and writers of the previous issue. The fall is also when we publish our online issue featuring multimedia art as well as writing. At this time, we are also busy gathering submissions for the spring issue and laying out the print publication.
How does joining the Well House benefit me?
First, being on staff is going to look great on a résumé or grad school application. You will have the opportunity to practice the skills you have learned in the classroom in a “real world” environment. Also, internships are available, so you could earn credit, as well!
This sounds great! How do I join?
Just tell us you want to do! We can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, you can just show up for the next meeting. It’s that easy!
