Recommended (Recreational) Reading

Here’s what the WR team is reading now:
  • Emily St. John Mandel‘s Station Eleven made one of us weep (in the best kind of way) on a plane last week
  • The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho
  • The Collected Short Stories of Lydia Davis (read an excerpt here).
  • Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy is way more Miltonian than we realized in Middle School
  • Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants and Amy Poehler’s Yes Please
    The Goldfinch, by Donna Tart
  • Childhood history buffs, remember Scholastic’s Dear America books?

Wellesley Review Fall Release Party


The fall semester has finally come to an end, which means reading period–and finals–is just around the corner. But wait, the end of the semester also marks another very important event: don’t forget the Wellesley Review’s Fall Release Party! 

We will be hosting food and drinks (free for all who attend!) to celebrate the release of the 11th issue of our publication. Even if it’s just to pick up a copy of the newest issue (which is free), come by to support your talented fellow writers. There will also be selected readings of work from the published authors, so keep you eyes out for an update on the details. We look forward to seeing everyone there! 

Poe-try Night



Join us in the pub on November 1st for some spooky poetry fun! Eboard members will be reading some of their favorite pieces (and others are welcome to share too). We will be drawing the winners of our raffle at the event; follow us on twitter before Nov 1st @WellesleyReview for a chance to be chosen as a random entry into the raffle. Tickets will also be available to purchase at the event itself. We can’t wait to see you there!

Introducing…the Wellesley Review Eboard Members!












The fall semester at Wellesley is well underway, and it only seems right for the eboard to formally introduce themselves. To meet the individuals who work together and create the great events and publication itself, go over to our mastead page to read about each member. You’ll come to find that we are all friendly people who have a passion for the work we perform for the Wellesley Review (: (Side note: pictured here are our two lovely editor-in-chiefs. To see more pictures of other members, go over to our masthead page now!)
