“I don’t want to hear another word come out of your mouth. From now on, you will speak to me through tea. If you’re angry at me, make it hot so it burns my tongue and tastebuds. If you are feeling especially sentimental towards me today, put extra honey that I can dig out sheepishly with my fingers when no one’s watching. Put flowers on top so that they float. When you’re disappointed, make it cold. Make it so cold that I can only manage one sip and feel it roll around in my mouth, dull and tasting of metal. When you’re feeling especially in love with me, make it just right and watch as this ambrosia, this liquid of the gods, fills me up and sets my heart piping hot just like you do to me.”—connie (via eloquentiae)
Hey guys! If you have time and are interested in submitting to Lux and maybe meeting some of the editors you should stop by the club fair in the MPR today at 6:00. But you don’t have to show up at the club fair to be in Lux’s next issue, you just have to email us your writing or art (JPEGS preferred). The submission deadline is March 23rd, so prepare something to send to us before then!
You ought to be emailed back by the end of the night but due to scheduling, we probably won’t be able to tell you when we can set up interviews until Wednesday or Thursday. But it is very likely the interviews will be conducted over the weekend.
Another thing, the Fall ‘11 Issue still hasn’t come out, I’m so sorry. Just wait a few more weeks and we hope to have it printed! Thanks to everyone who submitted to us last semester, submit again, and thanks to all of you who saw my last post and emailed us about being on staff! You’re all wonderful
We have another staff meeting on Tuesday and that is about when you can expect to hear from us a schedule of when we can meet to interview for prospective editors. Because of the nature of a few of the emails, I feel the need to remind you that Lux is a student run magazine. We have a selective interviewing process to bring you on as staff, but it isn’t a paying job, and it is not apart of work-study. As a staff member you are apart of a community which requires commitment and passion; you’re volunteering your time to create something for the students, as a student. We get a budget but that money goes to buying things for events, and for paying for printing, etc. I’m sorry to disappoint anyone. I hope you will still be interested in interviewing and becoming apart of Lux.
We’ll set up meetings with you as soon as possible,
