The Kindling Humor Magazine
Our motto: Be subversive for credit! Even the best institutions need people to make fun of them, and that’s what we do at the Kindling. In the tradition of the Harvard Lampoon and the Onion (with our own local twist), students working for the Kindling make fun of national events, campus traditions, dorm life…all is fodder for us.
You can work on the Kindling and receive 1 credit per term as a staff member (1.5 credits for editors) or just do it for fun. The staff meets once a week with advisor Lisa Long, associate professor of English, and produces one issue every term.
"The Kindling uses fake names except in stories featuring public figures, which include North Central College administrators, professors, staff, and student leaders. In all Stories, readers should consider all quotations to be invented and all opinions ascribed to individuals to be fictitous. In short: it's all lies."
