Students in one of my classes have been working this semester to bring the DSU literary magazine into the electronic world once again. It had a brief moment in the sun of the internet years ago, when Dr. Dan Weinstein did some fancy html work to move the poetry from paper to pixels, but that moment passed and the site apparently disappeared. So, here we go again with a dedicated site, not bound by the DSU biz. Our site, New-Tricks.org, is up and running and waiting for the 2012 selections to be made and posted.
Sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta, the English honor society at DSU, New Tricks has been around since 1992, when the English majors sought to make things new by breaking with tradition at DSU.
We hope to shine a light on the good work that the writers and artists at DSU are doing, from students to faculty to staff. If you're interested, check out the site, give us some feedback, maybe send us some of your work, and we'll have some new material there in the next few weeks. Wish us luck!
