MC plans to reintroduce literary magazine, 'Pulse'

Marietta College’s English honorary society, Sigma Tau Delta, recently announced plans to resume publishing the College’s literary magazine, “Pulse.”

The magazine will debut at a formal party — including readings from the magazine and art inspired by writings — at Andrews Hall in January.

MC senior Rachelle England, editor of the magazine, said “Pulse” is being reinvented. “We want this edition of ‘Pulse’ to have a look, a logo, and a dynamic identity as a Marietta College publication,” England said.

The editorial board, which includes England, seniors Lani Varga, Cullen Hencke and Josh Green, and faculty advisors Beverly Hogue and Joe Sullivan, has introduced some changes in the magazine. In addition to essays, short stories, and poetry, this year the staff of “Pulse” is also inviting contributions of non-traditional types of writing, such as e-mail messages and Internet postings.

“The first re-edition of Pulse is committed to crossing genres, crossing disciplines, and crossing boundaries,” England said. “We’re looking for good writing in more than the usual places.”

Previous editions of “Pulse” were composed entirely of student-written submissions. The new “Pulse” editorial board has invited students, faculty, staff, administration and alumni to submit their written works for the publication.

Deadline for all submissions is Nov. 18. For more information or to submit written work for consideration, contact Pulse@marietta.edu.

“Pulse” is edited and published by Marietta College’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta. Students named to the honorary society are recognized for high achievement in English language and literature. Formed in 1924, Sigma Tau Delta has more than 450 chapters worldwide, and more than 125,000 members have been initiated since its inception.
