About the WSC Press


J.V. Brummels, Editor

Professor of English
Wayne State College

J. V. Brummels’ poems have been widely published in journals and magazines and have been recognized with a number of awards, including a Literature Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mildred Bennett Award for contributions to the state’s literature from the Nebraska Center for the Book.  A new collection, his fourth, A Book of Grass is due out this year.  Raised first on a farm and later on a ranch, he was educated at the University of Nebraska.  After college, he went east to Syracuse University to pursue a graduate degree in creative writing.  In 1984 he fulfilled a lifelong dream and began a horseback cattle ranch, which he still operates. 

A longtime professor at Wayne State College, he has also written and published short fiction and a novel.  For the last twelve years he’s been the publisher of Logan House, which specializes in contemporary American poetry and short fiction.  In 2006 he was named editor of the newly created WSC Press.    



Eddie Elfers, Editor

Director of Teaching and Learning Technology
Wayne State College

Eddie Elfers was born in El Paso, Texas, where his grandfather (Edmund Burke Elfers), was a respected judge, and his father (Edmund Burke Elfers Jr.) was a U.S. Customs inspector. As a first career, not consciously intended to counter the legal and law-enforcement careers of his forebears, he (Edmund Burke Elfers III) was a professional musician for a number of years. At some point, when the road began to get in the way of spending time with a growing family, he made the decision to get a "real job," a decision that led him to take the obvious step and go back to school. He earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Texas at El Paso, at the same time working as a copy editor at the El Paso Herald-Post, and a master's degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin, at the same time working as a copy editor at the Austin American-Statesman. The "real job" turned out to be teaching journalism at Wayne State College for seven years, until a one-year stint as interim Humanities Division head segued into his current position (still at Wayne State College) as director of Teaching & Learning Technology. Somewhere along the line he learned how to do computer-based design and layout. He still plays the guitar and is still trying to figure out why he left Austin.
