After receiving nearly 200 submissions of poetry, fiction, photography, and art–from more than 50 ACU students–the Shinnery editors and staff are working this week to finish sifting through all the great submissions and decide on the content of this year’s magazine. We received lots of very impressive submissions, and we’re excited for the upcoming issue. We’re also excited to have ACU’s very own James Utley, a graduating graphic design major, designing the magazine for us (see the cover design below).
So, mark your calendars for the Black Tulip, our annual release party, on Thursday, April 26th, at 7:30 p.m. in Shore Art Gallery. We’ll be giving out free copies of the magazine, so make sure to stop by and pick up your own personal copy. The evening will also feature readings from the authors published in this year’s issue, an open mic for anyone interested in sharing poetry or music, and lots of delicious refreshments (of course). Everyone is invited, so bring your friends, and join us for an evening of talent and fun!
