Salem Students Publish Black Squirrel Literary Journal


There was no way the COVID pandemic was going to keep a group of students and faculty members from doing something they really wanted to accomplish this past academic year: publishing a literary journal to showcase the creative talents on the Salem Campus.

Months of hard work and collaboration resulted in the online publication of Black Squirrel Scholars, a literary journal that features a collection of 52 works of poetry, essays, photography, drawings and graphics.

The faculty advisors for the project were Dr. Barbara George and Dr. Joshua Myers, both English faculty members.

The proposal team for the project were members of George’s professional writing class, including Aaron Holden, Whitney Fox and Mariah Lanzer. 

The design team included Fox, Lanzer and George.

The editorial team were all part of Myer’s editing and publishing class. Members included Nicholas Berger, Regan Crosser, Fox, Holden, Luke Holm, Lanzer, Erica Palocyi, Bailie Rohr, Skyllar Shasteen, Tyler Stratton and Melissa Tyger.
