Prairie Schooner Office Expansion Begins

priest_pond_lisa_gornick

Construction has officially begun on the Prairie Schooner office expansion in the University of Nebraska’s Andrews Hall.  The university maintenance crews are tearing down a section of wall to expand the Prairie Schooner offices into the rooms next door (formerly the media center), thus doubling the journal’s office space.  Managing editor Marianne Kunkel (pictured above) was on hand herself to help with the demolition.

The new space will house the office of editor-in-chief Kwame Dawes, a new workspace for the journal’s interns, and a larger meeting and conference area.  Construction is set to be completed in mid-November, well before the launch of the winter issue.
