Professor Charles Waugh, Assistant Editor at 'Isle'

Cover of an ISLE Volume

This summer, Professor Charles Waugh accepted a position as assistant editor for fiction at ISLE, the official publication of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment and the top US journal in the field of ecocriticism. ISLE provides an interdisciplinary venue for writing about the relation between human beings and the natural world, and it is seeking to improve its creative offerings. It has been edited for the past 25 years by the indefatigable Scott Slovic, who has helped thousands of young writers find their voice and their audience. The new editors--Christina Gerhardt and Jennifer Westerman--aim to build on that foundation and have invited KT Thompson, Cecily Parks, and Jennifer Chang along with Waugh to help out with the editing of the creative side of the journal.
