Submit Your Book or Other Work to “Short Takes”

Short Takes is a selective collection of mini-reviews in Amherst magazine of new books and other creative endeavors by Amherst alumni, faculty and staff. To have your book, film, music or other material considered for inclusion in this section, please email magazine@amherst.edu with the title of the work, the name(s) of the author(s)/creator(s), the name of the publisher and the date of publication.

In most cases, it is not necessary to mail us a physical copy of the work, but if you wish, you may send it via USPS to:

Amherst Magazine
PO Box 5000
Amherst, MA 01002

or by FedEx or UPS to:

Amherst Magazine
79 South Pleasant Street
Suite #300
Amherst, MA 01002

The magazine does not purchase the books or materials that are listed in Short Takes. The books we receive are eventually donated to the Amherst College Library.

Only a small number of the publications submitted for consideration will be included in Short Takes. Alumni are encouraged to write to their class secretaries to have their publications mentioned in the class notes.
