Upper Mississippi Harvest
Upper Mississippi Harvest Web Site (Includes full online 2013 edition)
I’ve been working on UMH since the end of 2012 and it’s been the most rewarding experience I’ve had in college. Upper Mississippi Harvest is the St. Cloud State University English department’s literature and art magazine–we publish poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama/screenwriting, and visual art including photography, drawings, paintings, and even comics (visual art, however, is published in black and white). Each issue is around 80 pages. The edition pictured and linked above was the first edition of UMH I had the privilege of helping to create.
I’ve been a submissions screening reader for poetry for the 2013 and 2014 editions. I am also a submissions screening reader for both poetry and fiction, as well as a co-editor for poetry, for the upcoming 2015 edition. As of August of 2014 I am also on their Social Networking Committee and Treasury Committee, and I have done promotional and distribution work for the magazine at most campus-wide promotional events the last two years.
