“Our core interest is in creative works -
essays, poems, stories,” Kuzma said. “But
we’re interested in diversity. There are hun
dreds of topics we’d like to address.”
Krista Magnuson, one of four editors on
this year’s Laurus staff, agreed that one vision
for Laurus is to get contributors from other
departments in the university.
we re trying to make Laurus more ot a
campus tradition, rather than an English one,”

“We made some headway in the current
issue, but not near as much as we hoped. We’re
working really hard at it,” Magnuson said.
“If we could get contributions about sci
ence or sports, it would be really great,”
Kuzma said. “But it will be tough.”
Kuzma said works of all kinds could be
