The Lightning Strike

Katelyn M. Quirin '14, Gettysburg College

Katie is a junior with a double major in History and English. She hopes to someday actually be able to do something with her Humanities degrees, but that probably means eight more years of school. She loves books and writing of almost any kind and is very excited not only to be an editor but also a featured writer in The Mercury this year.


The Mercury is a student-run art and literary magazine released each April. It has been published annually since 1899 at Gettysburg College. All students of the College are invited to participate on the staff and to submit their work for possible publication. Editors are elected annually by the entire staff. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the fall and early spring semesters and are reviewed and chosen anonymously by the staff.
