Title

Article "Literary Magazine Changes Style; Editors Plan Satirical Approach"

Description

For the 1978 issue of the Messenger, new editors Rick Stine and Mark Hebdon changed the publication from a literary magazine to a satirical magazine called the Messenger Lampoon. This choice was made, according to vice president of student affairs and member of the University Board of Publications William H. Leftwich, because interest in the literary magazine had been dwindling. However, the new format was only approved for the single issue. In response to the Lampoon, the Leviathan, another magazine on campus, opened to poetry and short story submissions. Melissa McWethy, who lost in the vote for editorship, argued against the choice, claiming that it was "a shame that a liberal arts college will not have a literary magazine" in 1978.
