Lariat wants your content for A&E pages

By Joshua Madden
A&E Editor

My name is Joshua Madden and I will be serving as the Arts & Entertainment editor for The Baylor Lariat. Let me be the first to welcome you to this section of the paper. If you’re like me, this is probably the first part of the paper you turn to – to read film and book reviews, find out about local performances, to find things to make the school year a little more fun and to procrastinate your studying a little bit longer.

As an incoming graduate student, I am not only new to this position at the Lariat, but I am new to Baylor University as a whole. Because of this, I want your suggestions right off the bat. What local artists do you want to see covered in this section? Are there events in the Waco area that you’d like to see covered?

Texas has a vibrant artistic community and I want to make the most of my time here as both a resident of the state and as the Lariat’s Arts & Entertainment editor. So let me know what you want covered. You can email me at and let me know what you would like to see in the paper.

While there will be plenty of “Dexter” references and film reviews for you to read here, I want you to also be able to read about something you really care about: you. Are you in a band? Are you performing in the area? What about writing? Painting? Let me know what you’re up to and you just might see yourself in the paper.

As evidenced by the first section of our “Great Video Games” series, this section of the paper is going to try to cater to your interests as much as possible. If you have a great video game to talk about, choose a game and send me a justification for why you think it’s one of the best of all time. You can even send me a full column if you want.

The best stories are the ones that you want to read – we will try our best everyday to find and produce this content for you, but the more feedback you can give me, the better off we’ll be. This section is going to be about finding the most entertaining things going on around Baylor and that might just be whatever you’re doing this weekend.

So get on your email and fire away.
