Volume 4 Release Party

The Streetcar staff is proud to announce that our fourth volume has officially arrived! After a year’s worth of hard work, we’re ready to celebrate the completion of our newest volume, and we want you to be there with us. Our Release Party will take place on Thursday, April 21st, at 4pm in the third floor lobby of Nunnelee Hall on the MSU campus. We will have a poetry reading, artwork from the journal on display, and free copies of Volume 4 to take home. Refreshments will be provided. All students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited! Help us celebrate all our staff members’ hard work and the talent of the students whose submissions make The Streetcar possible. We hope to see you there!Vol 4 Release Flyer (adjusted)2

Six Word Story Contest

The Streetcar is going to host a Six Word Story Contest on our Twitter account.  This contest will take place on Wednesday, February 24th from 8am to 5pm.  The rules are simple Streetcar fans, it can ONLY be six words…all of your ifs, ands, or buts included!

On that day, from 8am until 5pm, anyone who wishes to participate will tweet at The Streetcar with their six word story and the hashtag #TSCStreetTweet.  We will count up all of the likes and retweets, and whichever story receives the most will win the prize.  That means even if you don’t want to participate with your own story, you should get on our Twitter that day and vote by liking or retweeting any of the stories that you want to win.

We will give you more details about the prize we are going to give away as the week goes on, so stay tuned for updates on our social media.  If you have any questions about this event, you can find us on social media—we have a Facebook and a Twitter—or you can email us at: thestreetcarmsu@yahoo.com.

We’re excited to see what y’all can come up with in six words, and if you need a little inspiration, here’s a six word story attributed to Hemingway himself: For sale: baby shoes, never worn.

Exciting News for Volumes Four & Five

At the beginning of this semester, we officially moved forward into the production and printing process for Volume Four of The Streetcar. This Spring 2016 issue of the journal will be distributed at our Release Party on April 21st at 4pm (location TBA).

In the meantime, while we are working hard to bring you Volume Four, we will also be accepting submissions for Volume Five, which will be printed next year in the Spring of 2017.  The deadline for that volume will be on November 20, 2016 at 5pm.  As always, we’d love to see your short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, art, photography, and any other creative submissions.

Stay tuned this semester for updates on these volumes and information on exciting events to be hosted by The Streetcar that are in the works.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding either Volume Four or Volume Five, please feel free to email us at:

thestreetcarmsu@yahoo.com

We’d also love for you to check us out on social media, where you can always stay up to date on everything related to The Streetcar.

Staff Applications for 2015/2016

As most of you are aware, we had to cancel our second interest meeting due to panic that arose on campus on Thursday morning. As always, if you have any questions about The Streetcar, please feel free to email us at thestreetcarmsu@yahoo.com. In the meantime, I wanted to give you all access to the staff application for this year. I am going to (hopefully) embed it into this post which will allow you to complete it electronically. We would love to have all applications in by 5:00 today, but in light of the events, we will accept them until Saturday, August 29th at 5:00. Since the deadline is now on a weekend, you will need to email it to us. There are scanners in the library if you need them. Or if you can take a clear picture with your phone, we would gladly accept a high-quality .jpeg file.

If you all have any questions about the application below, please email us!

Best,

Dakotah Daffron,

Co-Editor-in-Chief

I’m sorry, but we are no longer accepting applications for staff members. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the journal!
