Student-run publications are a unique feature of Ohio Northern's English Department. Besides providing hands-on experience with writing, editing and publishing, these publications also give upperclassmen leadership opportunities as editors.
Polaris: Journal of Literature and the Arts is Ohio Northern University's literary journal that publishes selected student submissions including works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction and artwork. Dr. Jennifer Moore advises the Polaris staff and co-editors include Lucas Campbell and Kelsi Rupersberg.
This year, our departmental newsletter has transitioned from print to web. Created entirely by our students, the newsletter highlights the happenings of ONU's English Department. By the end of the year, students involved with this publication will be skilled in several aspects of newsletter and small magazine publication, including: interviewing for feature stories, taking high-quality photographs, writing interesting articles and proficently using Adobe PhotoShop, InDesign, and WordPress. Dr. Bauer advises this publication.
