A Letter from the Editor

It’s finally the end of the semester and I couldn’t be happier with how Volume 17 turned out. I’ve been in Literary Publications for the past 3 spring semesters, and this year was definitely the most challenging to date - but by far the most rewarding.

I first took this class because my advisor, the professor who taught the course in the past, told me that I should. I had no idea what the course was, and at first I thought it was a made up journal that would allow students to see what the process would be like. Thankfully, I was wrong and it’s been so fun to be able to work with different people, themes, and professors in the years since.

As this year’s editor-in-chief, I took on a role that was very different from what I had done as a member of the editing team. I was able to see behind the scenes of putting together the work for the class, and it was rewarding to see everyone else working so hard alongside me. I was able to lead discussions in class and could see what each team was working on rather than just sticking to my own. As this year’s class was a little bigger, we had to work with making sure that everyone was involved as well. While this was challenging, I think that it allowed so many perspectives to draw from as we began to piece everything together.

This class has offered me such a unique experience, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have been able to get to know so many new people. I really can’t wait to see what the future Literary Publications classes are able to bring to Northern Eclecta.
