Saturday marks the final day for students to submit art and literary work for the publication of the Shinnery Review this year.
The Shinnery Review is a student-run literary magazine printed annually at the end of the spring semester. The magazine features poetry, photography, short stories and general artwork submitted by ACU students. The staff members of the magazine meet each Thursday to judge and choose quality work that will be published.
Students lately have submitted an average of two entries a week, and as the end of the week draws near, staff members hope more work will be submitted, so they may have a large variety. Staff members are hoping this week will be the final push students need to gather their creative ideas for submission.
“We hope to get as much work from students as possible this week so that we can pick from great selections to have good work to show the public what is happening at ACU in the art and literary fields this year,” said Megan Faver, junior English major from Lufkin and Shinnery Review staff member.
Staff members are anticipating the publication of the magazine this year, as well as the many forms of work submitted by students. They said it is an honor for any student to have work published, and the Shinnery Review offers students the opportunity to showcase their creativity to the university as well as the public.
“The magazine benefits the general populous by giving students an outlet to publish their literary and artistic works and to see some of the amazing work that ACU students are creating,” Faver said in an e-mail.
Students, faculty and staff can purchase a copy of the Shinnery Review in the Campus Center the week before final exams.
“It is something different,” said Kendell Wilson, junior advertising/public relations major from Sherman and Shinnery Review staff member. “Even if students are not completely interested, the Shinnery Review is a great way to get a good taste of art and culture.”
