Xylem 2014-2015

Hi All!

Thank you to those of you who were able to make it to the mass meeting! It was so lovely meeting you all. If you weren’t able to make the meeting then that’s okay! You can find a detailed list of open chair positions and the responsibilities they entail here:

Xylem Committee Information

You can download the chair application here: Committee Chair Application

Please submit your application to xylemliterarymagazine@gmail.com with the title of the position you are applying to as the subject line and your application as an attachment (you can pass along your resume if you have relevant experience, but that’s not mandatory or expected). You may apply for more than one chair position, just specify which ones in your e-mail. The deadline for applications is Monday October 13 by midnight. If you submit after this time your application will not be considered for leadership, but we will include you in whatever committee you applied to.

Please remember that it is completely fine if you don’t have experience with this type of work (unless you are applying to be chair for the layout committee, for which experience is required). This is a learning experience where we can all benefit from each other in working toward a common goal: putting together a collection of interesting, thought-provoking and original student work. We are looking to build a team of dedicated, creative, hardworking individuals to see this magazine through to publication.

For those of you who are interested in joining a committee but not leading one: go ahead and peruse the committee information sheet and get an idea of which committees you can see yourself working with. Once we select our chairs, they’ll be in touch about meeting times and objectives for each group. [If you are NOT already on our mailing list contact us at xylemliterarymagazine@gmail.com and we’ll get you added!]

Committee Chairs will be selected and notified by the end of the day on Tuesday October 14. Once we have our chairs selected and our executive board established, we’ll get in touch with the rest of the group to set up committee meetings and get to know each other.

We look forward to reading your applications and getting to know you all!

Love,

Xylem Staff
