Dartmouth students launch 'Meetinghouse' literary magazine

thedartmouth.com – Tuesday January 12, 2021

Last fall, three students came together with the idea of developing a new publication to connect Dartmouth undergraduates with the wider literary world. This December, the efforts of Frances Mize ’22, Avery Saklad ’21 and Ethan Weinstein ’21 came to fruition in the first edition of Meetinghouse, a literary magazine that has already attracted submissions from over 1,200 authors and poets from around the world.

The project was funded in part through a $6,830 grant from the Leslie Center for the Humanities.
