Voo Doo, Rune Will Publish by January

By Michael M. Torrice
STAFF REPORTER

As the fall semester begins to wind down, several of MIT's student publications are getting ready to publish.

Voo Doo, MIT's humor magazine, is celebrating its 80th year of publication. The magazine has plans to produce a retrospective issue that will be released during final exams or Independent Activities Period, said Lex Nemzer '00, the publication's editor.

Voo Doo also has other plans for the semester, Nemzer said. "We are currently working on a series of small-scale pamphlets, as well as continuing to report the news," he said. The magazine staff members "plan to get more involved in campus politics."

There will likely be a submission drive in the near future, Nemzer said.

Rune to publish before finals

Rune, MIT's literature and arts magazine, will publish before final exams, said Tanya Zelevinsky '99. "We accept all types of artwork and writing, including short stories, poetry, essays, drawings, paintings, photography, computer art, collages and so on," Zelevinsky said. Although they are not accepting any more submissions for the fall issue, work may be sent in for the spring issue. Submissions are accepted from the entire MIT community.

A new literary magazine, Aeolous, will publish work from the MIT and Wellsley communities. They hope to have an issue out by the beginning of next semester.

Aeolous' staff also publishes a newsletter called "Vine." "Vine's purpose is to create a forum for events around Boston," said Emily Esung, editor of Aeolous.

New Sloan online publication

Another new publication is The Wadsworth Street Journal, put out electronically by students at the Sloan School of Management. "The WSJ is an on-line newspaper for the Sloan community", said Vinay Bhargava G, the paper's editor. The paper not only reports on Sloan-related news, but also provides a place to exhibit student creativity through art and photography.

The self-funded group publishes every two weeks and accepts submissions from the entire MIT student body. The WSJ can be found at http://www.wsj.org.
