Alex Beard – Assistant Poetry Editor
I‘m looking for poetry that matters. I like poems about people and the world expressed in interesting and thought-provoking ways. I want a poem to make me think and leave an impression on me—something I can quote in the future.
Ian Repko – Assistant Poetry Editor
Poetry I prefer is semantically, syntactically and aesthetically pleasing. It should impart wisdom or provide a new take or point of view on a concept. Most importantly, a poem should evoke emotion from it’s reader whether it be positive or negative, a reader should be altered at the finish of the poem. Ambiguity can be a double edged sword, be creative and experimental with a purpose or intentional lack of purpose. The poem should carry the words above their own individual meaning and be redefined in the poem’s context. Take chances.

Rebecca Barnard – Assistant Fiction Editor
I like works of fiction with action, dialogue, and a unique plot line. I want to know the characters intimately, and be able to see the setting in the vivid detail of a postcard. Surprise me. Keep me guessing even after I’ve finished reading. Leave room for my interpretation, but make sure I am reading your story and not making my own out with your words. Details are critical; from the size of her feet to the silver moonlight peeking through the drooping shades of the decrepit house.
Sarah Urner – Assistant Fiction Editor
I am looking for writing that is innovative and original. Show me creativity. Show me personality. Show me inspiration. I want to read something that makes me put my thinking cap on, as well as something that tugs on the heart strings a bit. Because what good is writing that doesn’t make you feel anything? And who doesn’t love to be given a whole new perspective? Have fun with it, be a little crazy. You never know what your mind could create.
David Yasenchak – Art Editor
I am a senior at Lebanon Valley College with a double major in Studio Art and Art History and I am the art editor for The Green Blotter Society. My work varies greatly in terms of media, but I tend to focus on improvisational pen and ink illustration, wheel-thrown and altered ceramics, installation, and stream of consciousness writing. I have a fondness for visual art that is thought-provoking but retains a bit of ambiguity. I am partial to the work of Robert Rauschenberg, Ray Johnson, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jasper Johns, as well as contemporary artists like James Jean, Remed, and Blu.
