Student-run publications are some of the most immersive opportunities provided by the Department of English. These hands-on experiences with writing, editing and publishing are a requirement for any English major, and they give key opportunities for development and leadership. Upperclassmen have the additional option to lead these publications as editors-in-chief.
ONU's literary journal, Polaris: Journal of Literature and the Arts, publishes selected student submissions, including works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction and art. It is offered as a practicum class as well, so students can receive credit while working on the magazine. Dr. Jennifer Moore, assistant professor of creative writing, advises this publication, and Rachel Cruea, a senior creative writing major from Findlay, Ohio, is this year's editor-in-chief. Kelley Lewis and Marisa Lucas will be serving as co-editors-in-chief for the coming school year.
