My name is Jordan Cory and I am the other intern for the Southern Indiana Review this semester. Along with the duties of submission entries and mailing of rejection or acceptance letters, the internship also provides the opportunity to witness the duties of acting editors. It is a fortunate experience for an undergrad, since normally literary magazine experience is only open for grad students. We also work on a student version of the review for further practice on the procedure of developing a literary journal.
Outside the internship I have been rereading Saul Bellow's "Herzog" for a critical assessment paper. Trying to find a way to write something new and true about something that has been written on widely already. A lofty choice of literary work for the assignment, but it was mine and now I have to go with it.
