If you are an undergraduate at Pitt and want to be a part of the staff, just talk to any of our members or e-mail for information. No prior experience is required nor does literature, writing, or art necessarily have to be a focus of your course studies. Just come with the desire to participate and the willingness to read critically and discuss.
