The Shinnery Review will be released tonight at 7 p.m. in the Shore Art Gallery as a part of the Black Tulip Party. Students, faculty and family are invited to attend and celebrate all who have been a part of the assembly of this publication.
The Shinnery Review is a student run literary arts magazine that has been produced at ACU once a year for the last 18 years. It is an opportunity for students from all over campus, from every major and classification, to display their writing and artistic abilities.
Published students will be given the opportunity to perform their publications at the event. This is also an opportunity for students who were not published to participate in an open mic portion of the evening.
Every year students look forward to reading and observing what their peers have published in the magazine. There is a variety of work in the magazine. That is what makes it so unique. Students were encouraged to submit poems, short stories, creative nonfiction and photos creating an assortment of artistic value.
“I pick up a copy of it every year,” said Joey Prince, sophomore Bible major from Round Rock. “I’m always excited to see who has an entry and how talented the students on my campus are.”
“For the past few years, the Shinnery has become a publication of which I am quite proud,” saidÂ Marshall Fox, editor of the Shinnery Review and senior English major from Waco.Â “I know ACU is rich in students with great poetic and artistic capabilities.”
All semester long students have been submitting their work to the editorial team in hopes their work would be chosen for the publication.
“There is a great deal of work and communication that has to be made between the editor, assistant editors, our sponsors and the student body,” said Fox. “Although it has been a daunting process, it has definitely been a rewarding experience.”
Tonight at the Black Tulip party, as the publication is released, the editorial team for 2013-3014 will also be announced.
